We’d like to introduce you to Anthea Lewis, wife of our own team member, Joe Lewis. Joe is on our installation team and Anthea is a very skilled craftsperson, too. She makes some fabulous wood crafts with a local and Kentucky flair.
A little more than two years ago, Anthea started taking her design skills in a new direction. An interior and kitchen designer, Anthea received a scroll saw and made a “Welcome” door sign in the shape of the state of Kentucky for a friend. As she posted pictures of her creations on her Facebook page, she regularly received requests for unique, one-of-a-kind items and Designs by Anthea was born.
Here are some of Anthea’s creations (click image to enlarge)
One recent project was an heirloom family recipe lettered on a decorative cutting board in the shape of the state of Kentucky. The cutting board was a gift that was shipped to New Zealand.
Designs By Anthea specializes in door signs, so let her dress up your new door. Her items make great gifts for weddings, birthdays and other special events (think Derby guests!). Look for her booth at the Jeffersontown Gaslight Festival in September and Bardstown Arts, Crafts & Antiques Festival in October. Let her make something special for your favorite person.
