Welcome to Art From the Bark

Art from the Bark is owned by Kathy Overcash, a woodcarving artist and instructor.  Kathy specializes in

carving whimsical Cottonwood bark houses.  Kathy has been carving since 2006. After taking a whimsical

bark house class with Rick Jensen, she fell in love with carving Cottonwood bark and specifically, bark

houses.  The whimsical nature of the houses caught Kathy’s heart and her imagination.   She continues to

carve whimsical houses while trying to expand the artistic and fanciful nature of these houses.   Her

whimsical houses and other woodcarvings have won blue ribbons at many shows on the east coast with some

winning “Best in Class”, “Best of Show”, “People’s Choice” and “Judges Creativity Awards”.  Kathy retired in

2012 allowing her to focus full time on carving and teaching.  She is a woodcarving instructor where she

specializes in teaching others how to bring out the “whimsy” and “fanciful” characteristics of their houses

and other woodcarving art.
