We would like to introduce one of our members

It is our pleasure to introduce another Folkart & Primitives Team Member, please welcome Becky of Country Lane Folk Art.

Here is what she has to say on her Etsy Shop "About" page: "Hi, I'm Becky. I'm a self taught painter, wife and mother of 2 boys. I enjoy my life in the country, surrounded by the Maine woods! Tucker, my Pug, Remy, my German Short Hair Pointer, and Maggie my cat are never far from me while I paint. 

My painting adventure started several years ago when attending a craft show, I saw a tiny wooden milk bottle, maybe an inch tall., that was painted with cow spots on it. It was cute but too pricey for it's size. I thought to myself I could do that, and so began the painting obsession! I taught myself to paint and have enjoyed it ever since.

I find my inspirations from the surfaces I choose to paint on. It's funny how sometimes, I see a surface and know instantly what I will paint on it, no thinking it over for a few days, no having it sit on the desk waiting for an idea to come to me, the idea just comes instantly, I love when that happens!
My favorite thing to do is to go to a yard sale or thrift store(especially thrift stores!) to find that special, unique surface to paint. I then transform them into that special decorative piece for your home, which are sure to be a one of a kind item! My favorite things to paint are snowmen and primitive style folk art. 

Besides painting I also enjoy collecting vintage Nancy Drew books, gardening, both veggie and flowers, and my chickens! My chickens are my pets, I can look out of my painting studio window and watch all of their daily antics! "

  1. Thank you for featuring me on the blog! How nice! :)

  2. What a fantastic introduction! Becky...personal question...did you ever go to United Maine Craftsmen show at Cumberland? When I lived in Maine, I belonged and did that show (maybe we were there at the same time?). Love your work, love the fact that you are self-taught and I appreciate all things decoratively painted! Keep up the fantastic work!
