Welcome to the Southern Highland Craft Guild
Since 1930, artists from Maryland to Alabama have come together to create a network and market for mountain craftspeople. Today, Guild membership stands at more than 900 artisans selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

Born and raised in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, I have 200 years of mountain heritage teeming in my blood. In Girl Scouts my small troop learned how to make ole timey corn shuck dolls. Some 40 years later I still create the simple traditional corn shuck dolls of my grandmother. I also construct elaborate detailed ones that tell stories and evoke emotional responses to the viewer.
