Growing up in northern New York with it's majestic mountains, rivers and lakes, Brandy couldn't help but be inspired by nature. She homesteads and mines gems with her husband. Many of the materials used in her art are harvested from nature or reclaimed from old barns.
With a unique eye for color and eclectic design, Brandy regularly creates privately commissioned pieces. She has been sculpting, painting, woodburning and making jewelry for 25 years.
In March of 2015, her dream was realized when she opened Rustic Roots Design, LLC, where she offers a constantly evolving array of unique woodburned art, new and reclaimed home furnishings, glassware, jewelry, accessories, naturescape dioramas, original paintings, rustic signs and found objects turned into original matters of art.
