Welcome to Poplar Hollow Studio where unique handpainted & mixed media folk art is created primarily with gourds! Many of the gourds are grown on the family farm. The creations include OOAK (one-of-a-kind) old-fashioned santas & snowfolk, sweet spring bunnies and chicks, halloween jackos, skellies & witches; whimsical chickens, owls, and moons and so much more.
My gourd art is individually hand-crafted for quality, originality and character you will not find in mass produced products. The simplicity of country living on the farm, the beauty of nature and its changing seasons, an affinity for treasures from a bygone era and holiday traditions are all celebrated in my work.
I exhibit and sell my work at juried art & craft shows in the Mid-Atlantic region. A limited amount of inventory will be available periodically in my Etsy shop but I do focus on building inventory for shows. Sign up for my email mailing list on the contact page to be notified when work is available for sale in my shop.
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 gourd creations as a gift for a special someone. My wish is to simply light up a face or create a smile with my whimsical folk art.
