Michele Parsons, the founder of Parsons Wood Artistry, has been immersed in art and nature her entire life. She spent her childhood drawing and wandering in the woods, exploring nature. Finding a way to combine these interests resulted in her gravitating toward creating art in wood—woodcarving and pyrography. Both of these art forms give Michele a connection to trees, both in the peaceful sound of carving wood and the primal smell of burning wood.

Gifted with an ability to teach others, Michele has spent years teaching workshop-based pyrography classes and writing for Pyrography Magazine. She receives personal satisfaction when students learn pyrography and are excited about their newly found interest. To help students, especially in remote areas, Michele started selling pyrography equipment and accessories at discounted pricing. The result is Parsons Wood Artistry creating The Pyrography Store (TM).

When it comes to using pyrography to burn on leather, this book is perfect for beginners and an excellent resource for your bookshelf. No more guessing or buying products that you don't need! Michele's book completely sets you up to be successful, from using whatever type burner you already have to the types of leather you may want to choose for your future designs.
