Jeanne believes that hands are a glimpse into a person’s life story. Her grandparents’ strong, thick fingers supported their farming life. Inspired by those around her that create with their hands, Jeanne has kept hers busy, too. She has built her own timber frame house and sauna (with her trusty husband), stocks the root cellar with garden produce, renders bear fat for soapmaking, and wields a hammer to build toys with her daughter. From woodworking to fiber arts, beekeeping to mosaics, her hands are beginning to show her life’s work. Grandpa would be proud.
