Please meet . . .

Whimsical bird carvings in the Pennsylvania tradition.

Don has always been fascinated with the Folk Art of the Pennsylvania Germans.
Colorful bird carvings and bird trees especially make him smile.
True inspiration came when he and his wife Janie travelled throughout Pennsylvania
on antique buying trips.  It was Janie who encouraged Don to pick up a knife and carve
and it's Janie who adds the paint decoration.  
From the first carved "goonie bird" to present day, their work has evolved to include, lamps, 
bird trees, sculptures, whirly-gigs and many one of a kind items.

It's almost here!


Lori Ann Corelis of "The Spotted Hare" has been creating antique inspired mohair characters 
for 25 years. 
The inspiration for her work ranges from early fairy tales & antique toys to holiday characters of every kind.  Antique children's books are a favorite.
Lori Ann uses many antique fabrics and accessories to complete or complement her work and she also creates pincushions of sorts using lovely hand dyed woolens.



. . .


Tom has been designing and building quality Shaker furniture since 1963.
Compelled to further his inspiration, he taught industrial arts at Little Miami High School from 1971 to 1999. His talent has inspired hundreds of students to produce quality handcrafted furniture, which
has earned the school the distinction of being the top industrial arts department in the state of Ohio for
13 consecutive years.
Tom and his son, Tom Jr. specialize in Shaker reproductions.

The date is drawing near . . .


As a child Keith spent hours with coloring books and making colorful designs 
on paper, even then he knew he knew art would be a major part of his life.
Like many artists he feels his talent is God given, his style is similar to that of
18th and 19th century painters.  
Termed "Naive", or not of formal training.
Now retired from his career as a graphic designer, Keith devotes much of his time to
painting folk art images, spending time with his wife of 50 years and enjoying their
100 year old farmhouse in Montgomery County Maryland.
