As a child I helped my grandfather in his woodworking shop, and learned tradi1onal Southern
handcraRs and pain1ng from my grandmothers. Close 1es to my family and a love of the
mountains kept me in WNC while earning a BFA and K-12 art teaching licensure from UNCA.
ARer woking for a local craRsman for a number of years, I enrolled in the Professional CraRs
Program at Haywood Community College, and began focusing solely on woodworking. While my
art has gone through several transi1ons over the years, it has remained rooted in my
rela1onship with my loved ones.
