Secondhand Frog

Gerry Burklow is a retired hospice nurse who worked in a world of stark reality and pain. As part of her self-care practice, she discovered the art of needle felting and paper mache. Completely self taught, you can find her most days in her studio-a land where cheeky squirrels serve tea to chipmunks and polar bears sail ships. The art I make comes from a wonderful childhood and memories of a simpler time- and who doesn’t love an owl in a big hat?
