Foolhardy Folk Art began because of Toni’s long-time love of antique game boards. The prices of the antique boards were out of sight! She decided that if she couldn’t afford an antique, she would learn to paint and design her own interpretation of the antique boards.
After many years of perfecting her craft, she was able to reproduce the aged appearance of a board that's seen many years of gameplay and was unearthed years later in an old barn. Her unique, multi-step process for producing her finished work succeeds in recreating the look and feel of a true vintage piece.
