Ravenberg Folkstyle Collection
from Silvestri! by DEMDACO
More than simply holiday icons carved in wood, these folksy Santas and snowmen radiate a visual life of their own. Through refined carving and intricate painting, artist Kathy Ravenberg gives each of her wooden masterpieces unique character and emotion that captures the soul of the season and brings a smile to everyone who encounters them.
Meet the Artist
Kathy Ravenberg remembers always having not only a desire, but also a need to create art throughout her childhood. As the fifth of seven children, she credits sibling survival as the source of her creative outlet. Kathy has been carving creations from her favorite medium, wood, for over twenty years, working with all different kinds of wood, as well as a variety of antique wood objects. Her love of Christmas and her appreciation for both the generosity and lessons taught by good people during the holiday season makes Santa Claus a favorite subject in her craftsmanship. Kathy finds joy in bringing smiles to those who cherish her works.
