My 24 year residence in Alaska (Bethel to Fairbanks) has been occupied by my loving partner Nancy, nursing, farming, and being a b&b host; as well as a life long DIYer. Growing up in rural Colorado I learned it was important to learn a broad range of skills to maintain daily needs. Also, I value learning common techniques and skills used in past daily life.
It was my good fortune to meet Randy Brown many years ago and learn from his passion for bowl carving. I’ve been carving since 2015 and still learn something new in every bowl. My 2 favorite quotes are “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” by William Morris and “If you need it, make it” found on an unauthored sign in a shearing shed in South Australia.
