ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
I have been part of this wonderful mountain Community for close to 30 years. My life has always included some form of art or craft. My love is in fiber arts which I have created since I was a young girl learning from my Mother and Grandmothers. I knit, crochet, rug hook, sew, make jewelry with braiding and knots, and knitted wire.
Painting is another art form that I enjoy and have had classes in watercolor, acrylic, and oil. Watercolor seems to be my most used medium. I have been painting for 20 years.
I do some form of art or craft everyday.
