Arts and Crafts

Jackson County Artists

Jackson County boasts a long history of artists of diverse genres. One can find brilliant imagination in works of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design, as well as the literary efforts of essayists, novelists, and poets. Jackson County has produced painters, sculptures, woodworkers, metalworkers, photographers, and artists of unique and unexpected mediums. Many artists draw inspiration from their experience in rural Appalachia. Some of the most moving and ingenious art is produced by artists who remain virtually unknown and unrecognized in these wooded hills.

My name is Jason. I have always had an interest in making things that look nice and are functional. I have been doing leather carving for a few years now, everything I make is hand tooled and stitched.  It pleases me greatly to see someone using or wearing something I’ve made.  I can make personalized items also.
