Hello, we are DeAnn Melton and James Cook, and we both have master's degrees in Fine Art. Our paintings are shown in galleries around the country. The old 1880 family hardware store in Kansas is a studio. We have also collected a variety of historical items such as flintlocks, knives, tomahawks, and other collectables that can add interest to your home or workspace. Our company ‘Blue Stem Antique’ is named creatively, where ‘Bluestem’ refers to the grass that is grown in Kansas.
We are passionate about our art and want everyone to take home a landscape painting or an antique as a souvenir of the history. We want you to experience our paintings or collectables and what we felt when we first found or created a unique piece.
We have an impressive collection of antiques and decorative items, which also include original art. You can find landscape paintings at jamespringlecook.com and bird and still life paintings at deannmelton.com historical artifacts and decorative pieces at bluestemantique.com.
