Our Story

Welcome to Back Porch Studios. It's a little dream that's been in my heart for some time now, and whose time has come. Why the name? My back porch is my favorite place. It's been home to babies growing up into amazing adults, neighborhood gatherings, Young Life Clubs, s'mores around the fire, Thanksgiving dinners with extended family, wedding planning, bird watching, and great conversations over a cup of coffee with the hubs at the end of the day. Most of all it's where I'm able to do my most creative thinking.

All my life my love for all things creative has woven itself into my passions, from working with mentally and physically challenged children and adults, to teaching, to volunteering, to loving my family. With encouragement and countless hours of help from my family, we've been able to embark on this adventure called Back Porch Studios.

Our goal is to do our very best work for our customers. We are constantly testing fragrances and new methods of candle making and experimenting with new fonts, paints, inks, and stains to make our hand-lettered work unique and of best quality. We strongly believe in giving back to our community and beyond, so when you light a Back Porch Studios candle or purchase other BPS made products, you are helping light the way for those who are struggling in our community and beyond. For more information about causes we support, visit our "community" page.

We are so happy you're here and we invite you to stay awhile! Back Porch Studios is always evolving so you never know what you might find here!

Thanks for popping by,

The Back Porch Studios Team
