Julia McCrory Weatherford spends her days in an old farm cabin, built by her grandfather, just outside Black Mountain, NC.   The cabin studio looks out over the valley and town, and up to the mountain skyline, supplying daily inspiration for her work: an apple orchard, a rocky creek, an endless forest.

Julia has been self employed as an artist and musician since 1979. 

“I have always felt compelled to live the most creative, productive life possible: gardening, stone wall building, homesteading, playing music in my community, digging out my own spring;  being an active contributor and producer rather than a consumer.   Living the creative life is what brings me joy and satisfaction.”
