What began 55 years ago with my late-husband, Richard McCooey, creating the 1789, Tombs and F. Scott's restaurants then selling to the great Clyde's Restaurant Group decades later, has evolved into an entire world where you can participate and hire us to design memorable interiors for your home, restaurant, hotel and resort, to paint an oil portrait, or simply, to design the finest custom framing available.
It is a privilege for me to be a part of this story and to "keep the party going", as Richard would say. -Karen McCooey
