May we introduce . . .

We decided to begin our introductions with the youngest of our artisans, 
Kelsey A. Smith.  
At 21 years of age, she is a third generation artisan. Her passion for pen and ink
 coupled with a love of history makes the art of fraktur a perfect fit for her talents. 
She began apprenticing with her mother, Rebekah L. Smith, when she was 14 
years old, and has been inspired by Pennsylvania-German Folk art ever since.
Kelsey is currently at Indiana University-Purdue University Indinapolis 
pursuing a Master of Arts in Museum Studies. 
She hopes to work with local history Museums in the future and 
continue with her folk art.

The show plans are progressing nicely and to say we are excited

In addition to this site we also have a Facebook page & a pinterest page.
