After working for many years as a carpenter doing home repairs and remodeling, my love of birds led me to build birdhouses from the rescued boards and objects found in my work remodeling buildings in the area.  I use pieces of tin roofs, barbed wire and sawmill slabs.  Then I add seedpods, twigs, vines and mosses. These birdhouses are designed to highlight the best features of their construction materials and are easy to maintain. They are beautiful enough to be displayed in your home and are sturdy enough to be used in the yard. I am a member of the Mississippi Craftsmen’s Guild and I exhibit at select festivals, plant sales and farmers markets.  My birdhouses are in 47 states and eight foreign countries.  -- R. P.

Lisa Lane

If nothing is new under the sun, the work of Lisa Lane probably comes close. An eclectic world of incitingly incorrigible images, uncanny color combinations, inverted viewpoints and skewed balances. A world populated with off-whimsical and folklife people and animals.

 

Lisa Lane's lavishly bejeweled and lushly surfaced brand of wall art, boldly and brightly painted on cut out half-inch birch wood, comes in an amazing array of "Happy chickens," "Fun Fish," "Perky Pies," "Sassy Signs," and other "species." Variously adorned with bits of glass, metal, shell, buttons, fabric, feathers, bottle caps, and who knows what else, then coated with her signature high gloss finish, these spunky originals come in color combos and styles galore, making it sometimes difficult to choose a favorite, but also assuring a selection to fit perfectly almost any décor scheme or placement
