Flint & Field began as a personal project, before it even had a name, when my wife and I were trying to find the perfect print for one of the bare walls in our home. Unsuccessful in our search for the print, we decided to just create one. The result was our "Kansas – Home" print.
But let's back up a little further. There's more to the story.
I was raised in Hillsboro, a small, rural farming community just on the edge of the Flint Hills in Kansas. Afton, my wife, is from Topeka, the capital of Kansas. We met and fell in love while attending Kansas State University, and were married shortly after. We moved to the Kansas City area, where we still live with our three wonderful children today. While we've had great opportunities to relocate across the country, we've chosen to put our roots down here, close to family, friends, and places we love. Kansas is home to us, and always will be.
Whether it’s about the place you’re from, an experience you will never forget, or something you’re more passionate about than anyone else, you also have a story to tell. We'll help you tell it with our selection of original goods for you and your home.
