MARK ALAN

ARTISAN WOODS

 Mark Alan, graduate of the University of Arkansas School of Architecture, has always enjoyed design and loves creating woodwork. “I never cease to be amazed by the beautiful grain and figuring which can be found in wood”. Mark Alan and his wife now reside in beautiful White Bluff TN and is quickly becoming a highly recognized Tennessee Artisan.

BEBO FOLK ART

Artist John Paul Daniel says: 

"I am an outsider artist. I make my art out of sawmill lumber and other found materials. I sculpt the wood with my saw and sander into shapes of fish, snakes, gators and other critters, flowers, butterflies, etc. I make all sizes from a few inches to 15 feet long. I paint them using enamel paint so that the pieces can be hung outside if you want to. I also make angels and signs with inspirational messages on them. I paint them to remind me how to live. I am a musician and I love the blues, so I make “Bluesmen”, too. God has blessed me through my art. 

     It makes me smile and laugh making all my artwork. When people buy a piece of my art, the main thing they say to me is,  “it makes me happy, it makes me smile”. I try to give people a sense of hope. If I can do it you can too. I wake up in the morning and ask God to help me that day, and at night I thank him for helping me. He hasn’t let me down. . I hope that I can inspire others to enjoy life and live in peace.

    I first started making art in 1993. Since that time I have met so many people and made so many friends. My art has blessed me and my hope is that my art can be a blessing to others."
