The name DVus was born in 2018 as a random thought while driving to Grand Isle, LA for the weekend. DVus stands for D (Delatte, co-owner Shannon’s last name) + V (Valence, co-owner Jared’s last name) = us; D+V=us.
Orginally, DVus was a symbolic name to represent Shannon & Jared as a power couple and would be the future name of a camp and boat they dreamed of having one day. Therefore, when they started this company, DVus was the best name choice for it.
Shannon, artist/creator, has always loved arts and crafts. Other than art in high school, she has not had any special art training. She began painting on canvas in 2017 when she moved into her family home as the 3rd generation owning it. During that move, she wanted a change from the store bought decor she had and decided to decorate with her own art. That was when she rediscovered her passion for the arts. As time went on & after requests, she began to sell some of her work which expanded from canvas to oyster/crab shells and wood.
Jared, wood specialist, learned his skills from growing up watching his pawpaw doing woodwork in the garage. It was Jared’s idea to combine both of their skills sets and work together as a team In 2019.
