Danette Sperry - Folk Art
Danette Sperry is an outsider/self-taught folk artist born 1962 who lives in the small town Maysville, GA. with her husband, also a known folk artist John Sperry. They both love primitive antiques and folk art! Danette has been creating some form of art from the time of her childhood . She has always been creative in making things. For the last 20 years or so she has been a full time self-taught artist making: primitive furniture (farm tables, islands etc.) ; primitive folk art sculptures (using reclaimed wood with vintage found objects) ; and folk art paintings. Recently she is concentrating on a new medium of folk art paintings. These are 2D relief paintings on wood using a special technique she developed. Each piece incorporates incredible attention to detail bringing out the personality of her subjects. She loves painting angels & animals (especially birds and dogs). But almost any idea in her head may turn up on a painting. She loves to make art and make folks smile. Most of all her art gives her happiness in creating and that's what she loves to do! Her pieces can also be found in galleries & collected by many through the years.
