Chris Crooks became involved in the home decor industry soon after he and his wife Betty moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1989. After working with several area studios, he opened Frontier Studios, a southwestern plaster cast company. He sold the business to Thirtytstone Enterprises after 4 years and stayed on as art director.
