Married couple Lonnie and Twyla Money are cattle farmers based in Kentucky, known for their whimsical sculptures of animals, often composed of painted wood and gourds. The two converted a milking barn into a studio and have been creating their trademark work together for over fifteen years. Ranging from hand-held sizes to life-size pieces, their work has been exhibited and collected by multiple institutions including the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation and the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art (Owensboro, KY), among others.
