Our Folk Artists

Stopping by Hudson’s, you might just run into some very creative people!
Join us here as we introduce you to our folk artist friends & family!

Primitive Signs
by Cindy McClain


With a love for colonial decorating, Cindy became interested in painting tavern/trade signs after painting a Rufus Porter style mural in her home. She then started painting signs to decorate her own home and wanted to share her artistic talents with others.

Furniture and Smalls
by Pete Micciche!

Highboy by Pete

Pete keeps us well-stocked with incredible reproduction furniture! From William & Mary sideboards to primitive High Boys, Cottage-style cupboards to Pennsylvania German trunks… he can do it all! Pete also makes lots of  “smalls”… miniature cupboards, small benches, utensil boxes… whatever strikes his creative fancy!

Thistle Dew Mercantile!

Patriotic Eagle Scherenschnitte

Kim, our resident papercutter, is Richard & Melody’s daughter! Kim creates historically inspired Scherenschnitte, Fraktur, and Silhouettes, and her husband Chris builds beautiful faux-grained and distressed frames for her art. Kim’s work has been selected for Early American Life magazines Directory of Traditional American Crafts and their Holiday Directory. If you stop by Hudson’s, you will very likely see Kim hard at work on her next batch of papercuttings.

Penny Rugs and More
by Pat Lynch!

Pat Lynch is a “Jane of All Trades, and Master of Quite a Few!” Everything she puts her hand to, turns out beautifully! We have quite a selection of her work… unique penny rugs made from overdyed wool, as well as wonderful hand-painted floorcloths! And if you catch her on a “porch weekend” at Hudson’s, you’ll see her incredible pine needle baskets!
