"I made my first wood project at age six, started woodshop in 7th grade, and continued classes in high school with hopes for a date to Prom, being the only girl!
I was born with a rare, life-threatening disease called Fanconi Anemia (FA) and have survived a difficult bone marrow transplant. I have also endured multiple hand surgeries being born without a functioning thumb and limited hand muscles. Doctors said I would probably not be able to tie my own shoes.
The life expectancy for FA is 33, so I am honored to share a part of my life through this unique creation. Now at age 23, I have a lot of work to do.
Each pen is made with determination for life, love of the art, and hope for all who face adversity."
