Welcome to Poplar Hollow Studio...where unique, handpainted & mixed media folk art is created with gourds...many of which are grown on the family farm! The creations include OOAK (one-of-a-kind) sweet old-fashioned santas & snowfolk, halloween characters such as pumpkin guys, skellies & witches; whimsical chickens, vintage inspired moon-men & much more.
My gourd art is individually hand-crafted for quality, originality and character you will not find in mass produced products. Inspiration comes from the simplicity of country living on the farm, the beauty of nature and its changing seasons, and an affinity for treasures from a bygone era and holiday traditions...these things are all celebrated in my work.
I exhibit and sell my work at fine art & craft shows in the Mid-Atlantic region. I offer a limited amount of inventory in my Etsy shop. And recently I've been accepted as a member of the PFATT Marketplace...a wonderful group of juried folk artists who feature their latest handcrafted wares on the 10th of each month via an online marketplace!
With God's guidance, my work with gourds continues to evolve in new and exciting directions. I am humbled and honored to have people return year after year to add to their collections or purchase one of my gourds as a gift for a special someone. My wish...to simply light up a face or create a smile with one of my gourds.
