Heartwood Rocking Horses

Ready for fall orders!

1 Comment

If you have seen my previous posts, you may know that my husband and I have been away hiking for the past six months or so. What an amazing journey! We hiked nearly 3,000 miles from Mexico to Canada over the Continental Divide trail. I had plenty of time to think up some new plans and ideas for the coming year. My main goals are to refine my three most popular rocking horse styles, to make one new rocking horse design each year, to continue carving smaller equine related art pieces, and to carve commissioned portraits of your horses.

Here on my blog I do hope to post some woodworking tips that I find helpful. I’ll also mention if I’ll be attending a show, or if I finish a new project. Thanks so much for reading! Enjoy this photo of us on the trail…

I live and work in Asheville, NC. I've been learning to carve since 2012, and started my own rocking horse business in 2013. I've always loved drawing horses, and find those skills practiced as a teenager now come in handy as I carve each horse to life from chunks of reclaimed lumber. I love creating things that children can enjoy, move with, and learn from. I also love hiking through the hills of the Asheville area, swimming in the icy waterfalls, and hanging out with my husband and my dog.
