Tyra and LauraSeptember 2012: After eight years at the 800 N. Bishop Ave. location and a total of fourteen years in the Bishop Arts area we are sorry to say that due to City of Dallas Zoning Restrictions on N.

Laura and Tyra have set up separate offices. Tyra's new locations and information can be found here on her new website and Laura's can be found at the address below:
