About Us and Taos

The Land of Enchantment


About the Owners - Bob and Steph Deaver

We are both originally from California and have a wide range of life and career experiences that have led us to Taos and "Garden and Soul". Our backgrounds include landscape architecture, character animation, the anthropology and archaeology of the American Southwest, university teaching, and aerospace cost estimating. Thus, we bring a broad sense of aesthetics and experiences to this venture. We look forward to seeing you and assisting you in finding that perfect treasure, that little piece of Taos, to take home with you whether you live near or far.

Garden and Soul's Story

Garden and Soul began in Taos over 10 years ago with a mission to produce exceptional greeting cards featuring northern New Mexico artists' work, primarily for the wholesale market. In the early 2000s, that mission expanded to include a retail shop that showcased not only in-house creations but also quirky, original greeting cards produced by creative, independent artists from around the United States. Garden and Soul also developed a solid reputation for offering fine art giclee cards made by the artists themselves and our gallery expanded to include many of these artists' fine art originals and reproductions. As we developed our relationships with regional artists, we began to seek new ways to showcase their work, which led us to fine art tile production technology. Garden and Soul, no longer a brick mortar enterprise, is now restructuring to expand tile manufacture for residential and commercial applications such as murals and backsplashes. Soon, we will be able to offer a portfolio artists' designs and ancient imagery.
