I have spent all my life in the woods of the Appalachian mountains and foothills. No college for me. Instead, I homesteaded in West Virginia mountains and had the great fortune to be taught by old time crafters how to hand carve “treenware”, harvest and use hickory bark, poplar bark and other natural materials in basket making. I am also an organic produce farmer, a musician and a carpenter.
