Corner of Hwy. 87 and N. Knox Avenue
Mountain View, AR 72560
Early in my life I was a metalworker and welder. After I moved to Arkansas from Austin, Texas to enjoy the natural beauty and solitude of the Ozarks, my interest was rekindled by a Blacksmithing event at the Ozark Folk Center. I served an apprenticeship at the OFC and spent several years as a relief craft demonstrator doing old style blacksmithing. I retired as Resident Blacksmith from the Ozark Folk Center State Park in 2017.
