I asked Bobbie to share a bit about herself. She lives in the beautiful state of Oregon, has four amazing children, one beautiful granddaughter, one dog, three cats, and a guinea pig. Favorite activities include being with family, traveling, and camping. She has been working with wood about 30 years and has just celebrated her one year etsy anniversary. When asked where she finds the inspiration for her craft this is what she had to say: “Everywhere! I stepped away from art for a while. I lost my dear mother close to 2 years ago. Her love of God, of nature, and of my art got me to get going again. A lot of my work comes from things that she loved so much! My children and the amazing Pacific northwest have also been very inspiring to me.”
Bobbie's favorite items from her shop are the very popular wedding tree of hearts mat:
and the most difficult piece, the trunk with birds:
Although I already have a number of her pieces, Bobbie keeps coming up with wonderful new offerings to tempt me further. A couple of my new favorites:
Wood Butterfly Pen / Marker Holder
and Wood Burned Birds in the Branches Purse
