Welcome to Ravens Bend Folk Art. My name is Sharon Wittke and I enjoy creating primitive style folk art. Using acrylics, I paint my original designs on wooden bowls, plates, trays, boxes, footstools, chairs, and other utilitarian items, as well as on canvas suitable for framing.
I live in the Shawnee Hills of southernmost Illinois and I’m continually inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds me – rolling hills, the Mississippi and Ohio rivers, reclaimed wetlands, and endless scenes of rural life in America.
If you see any designs you especially like while you are browsing through my website, please contact me to create a custom folk art piece for you. Items currently for sale can by purchased by visiting my Etsy site, or by sending me an email. Thank you for your interest!
