REX BRANSON

has turned a beloved hobby into a professional career as a renowned artist. He found his creative spark in high school, with woodworking kindling his creative fire. Whittling led to driftwood carving and then to much larger, more ambitious pieces in different mediums. In 1982 the packing plant where he worked closed and he decided to try woodcarving full time. This risk paid off. By 1986 he was entering his pieces in competitions across the Midwest. He has won many awards, including: Best of Shows, Judges Choice, Best Display, Peoples Choice, and numerous 1st and 2nd place ribbons. He is a two time runner up Best of Show at the International Woodcarvers Congress and has had his work featured on the cover of woodcarving magazines in the US and abroad.

spent most of her young life in Arkansas where her father's love for the outdoors took her on many adventures in forests and along riverbanks.This bonding with nature gave her a strong sense of balance and a love for the simple things in life. In school she showed great artistic promise. Her creative interests changed from designing children's clothing to carving wood and stone. Like Rex, she began with small figures and driftwood, learning quickly and embracing different mediums. Her young adult life was spent experiencing the joys and pains of motherhood. And while all of her children are grown up, her work still often features nurturing themes found in the natural world. Her work is also known for its smooth, graceful lines. All of her pieces are a labor of love.
