Artist Theresa Disney sculpts in paper mache and imbues each one of her creations with a sense of humor and heart. "Blackie" tugged on the heartstrings of Nancy and Greg. When they saw this little fella, he reminded them of Jonah, their very special two year old.
Nancy says that Jonah was the seventh of eight pups and was born lame. When he was rejected by his mother, they adopted him. He doesn't let his injury slow him down. On their morning walks, Jonah keeps up just fine with a sideways hop.

Jake was known in his Georgia town as the man with the most televisions, often having 8 going simultaneously throughout his home. The characters that he painted featured large square eyes and exagerrated proportions. He painted everyday scenes from his community.
