By Ken Lessnau
As a child, Midwestern artist Ken Lessnau was fascinated by the form and color of antique toys and would spend hours examining how they were constructed and painted.
But serving in the military and working as a house painter didn't satisfy Ken's creative urges as an adult, and soon this self-taught artist was carving and painting
his own works of art. Ken's unique Wildside creations, designed for Christmas Treasures, reflect his love of form and color and demonstrate his fascinating,
one-of-a-kind style. All of Ken Lessnau's wood carvings are hand-signed by Ken himself.
