Stones are the color pallet and canvas of successful Texas sculpture rock artistCarlos Moseley….a descendent of famous 1850's Texan J.R. Couts….born and
raised in Guadalajara, Mexico….an American citizen.
Carlos has lived in Texas for over 25 years, and has been a
resident of the Texas Hill Country since 1995….living on a ranch nestled in oak trees touching the spring fed
