About Us

Hello y’all!

I’m Rosie, the owner of Hammer & Stain Emerald Coast.

I have called Florida home for the past 17 years! My husband Dean and I visited the Emerald Coast a few years ago and it didn’t take us long to find a home we loved here!

While I was a dentist for 23 years, I’ve always had a passion for the arts. I’ve worked with many visual and design arts – such as painting, drawing, crafts, calligraphy and furniture decoration – so to go on this new journey and get to be creative feels like a dream!

Dean is my husband and right hand man. I like to say that he’s the hammer and I’m the stain! He’s a Program Manager hailing all the way from Kansas, but he’s been all around the world after getting his Master’s from George Washington University. He’s an Air Force Veteran and on his free time he enjoys fishing, traveling, and gathering the whole family around the table. He is a grill master for sure!

Dean and I love exploring new places together, cooking and studying the Bible. We are both Biblical Counselors and we feel so honored to walk hand in hand in so many wonderful ventures. Together we have a total of 5 kids, 4 in-laws and 6 grandbabies!

We are looking forward to meeting all of you and working on your artistic creations together!
