This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Alma Church Picnic Vignette - 2007

     Kerras' made folk art from memories of his childhood.  This piece is a church picnic scene he knew well when growing up in the 1960-70's in rural Prince Edward Island.  In this piece he has the hallmarks of a church picnic - the cake auction; the homemade ice cream; the knock-the-cats-over game; the man who had too much to drank; the young man giving his girl a flower; a man running to the outhouse, etc. 
Kerras' piece built in April-May 2007
