Florida folk artist & designer

In all the things I do in life
The way that others view them
Should matter not as much to me
As reasons why I do them.

Self-taught fraktur artist ~
contemporary interpretations of traditional Pennsylvania German frakturs

Toni McCorkle is a self-taught folk artist living in Florida who uses found materials for most of her work.

Paintings begin with whatever surface will hold paint --- salvaged metal, scrap wood, old cloth book covers to name a few. Papier-mache pieces begin with cooking up old unwanted books for pulp. Papercuttings are often cut from the unprinted front & back pages of old books.

Scavenging for materials is more than a hobby for her - it's a way of life just as creating folk art is not a hobby for her - it's a compulsion. Words are often featured in her work - to bring a smile or to touch a heart or mind, one hopes.

Toni's work has been sold in museum shops and art galleries around the U.S.A., including the American Folk Art Museum in New York City, and some has even gone abroad.

She was a recent exhibitor at a show at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida.

Her designs have been featured in several publications, including Country Living Holidays, Somerset Studio, and Better Homes & Gardens Santa Claus magazines. She has also designed a few Christmas ornaments for mass-production by Silvestri/Fitz & Floyd.

We are so happy to have Toni's work here at Southern Heart Gallery...we hope you enjoy her art work as much as we do! Click HERE to go there now!
