What is the Desert Paintbrush?

The Desert Paintbrush is our way of helping you express your creativity!

Donna started The Desert Paintbrush out of her home to show off her artwork and sell handpicked items that she knew you'd love. 

The Desert Paintbrush has gone through many changes over the years due to.... well life... From online to brick-and-mortar to online again. 

Today, we've happily joined forces with three other small businesses to create The Desert Tribe, a brick-and-mortar specialty shop here in San Angelo, TX. We also travel across West Texas to attend vendor events! 

We embrace the change but one thing that remains consistent is our love to create! We hope you'll follow along with our journey and pick up some inspiration to show off your own creativity!
