Gay Foltz

Folk Art Carver
Gay started carving under the tutelage of her uncle Rey Bjurstrom and apprenticed with him before developing her own unique style. Her carvings now reside in homes all over the US and the world. Gay's repertoire includes cats, dogs, moons, suns, rabbits, crows, flying pigs, dragons or any other creature you or she can imagine...often with a whimsical twist to make you smile. Collectors of Santas keep her busy carving the new Santa she designs each year. Gay and her work have been featured on HGTV's "That's Clever", in "Country Folk Art" magazine, "Chip Chats" magazine and numerous newspaper articles. She is a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. Gay's studio, where she can be found at work creating her carvings, has been an integral part of The Village Artisans Gallery since it opened in 1995.
