CoCo and Steven Hardwick, we are Can Tab Folk Artists. We use can tabs in our art. I, CoCo, have always been interested in art. I met an incredible folk artist in 2002 by the name of Kim Clayton, now known as Kimberly Dawn. She owned a gallery in Conway, South Carolina, and I decided to work for her, doing what I love. I learned a whole new kind, Folk Art, taking things that people would normally throw away and turn them into art. I asked my husband, "What could we use that no other has used before to turn into art?" Pausing for a moment, I then said, "How about can tabs?" He laughed and said, "Go to my closet and get out the metal popcorn can." I did what he said, opened it up, and it was full of can tabs to the rim. I was shocked and knew that was what we had to use. With wood, acrylic paint and can tabs we have enjoyed creating bright, refreshing and inspirational pieces of art that create a breath of fresh air for the soul. God has blessed us with much joy in our lives, we paint it and share it with the world. We hope you enjoy the break from a fast paced world as you see what we see when we all slow down.
