Artist Description

You will feel her passion for the woodlands we all live in here next to
our wonderful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In addition to viewing
Barbara's Wildlife paintings, this show will also feature her newest
direction into the realm of 3-D art ... Gourds. These gourds continue
with the same subjects she loves doing in her 2-D paintings. However,
they contain line drawing done with a Wood Burning tool, and sculpting
done with Dremel Tools. Finally, she finishes them off with colored
pencil and coats of UV protecting clear acrylic spray to seal her art
permanently on the surface of these gourds.

Hand-carved wooden toys and antique holiday ornaments.
I will be demonstrating the hand carving of the toys cut from local
woods. I prune my plum trees and let the wood dry for several years.
Then I cut the pieces into boards and other shapes for toys. Hand saws
are used with chisels and planes. I can finish the toys but unfinished
they are safer. Some of the designs that I use are quite ancient. The
idea of mounting an animal on wheels goes back 4000 years. The dreidel
and Haman knocker go back 2500 years or more. The wooden whirlagig is
not more than 300 years old.

The holiday ornaments are from a collection of my family over the years.
I can make ornaments of wood as well. I have pendants from a local osage
orange tree that can be used as ornaments. Bracelets and rings from
local plum and mulberry are also available.
