DESCRIPTION

The Folk Tree is a remarkable store filled with flying mermaids, dragons, brightly colored giraffes, smiling suns and moons, and a host of other magical characters who arrived here by way of my many suitcases and bundles!

Hola! Iím Rocky Behr. Mexican folk art and the crafts of indigenous cultures are the spice of my life!! (The humorous wooden carving of me was created by my friend, Oaxacan artist Miguel Santiago).

The great joy of my life is traveling to remote villages of Mexico to gather the amazing spectacular work of artisans living there.

Visiting these artists and experiencing their culture makes my appreciation for their magical creativity even greater. Interested in joining me? On Folk Tree Tours, folk art and aficionados accompany me in small groups on these adventures.
