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).

A fantastic, in-depth look at the equipment, techniques, and basic skills needed by both the new pyrographer and well-experienced wood burner. Michele covers the technical aspects of our favorite craft with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. A great read for any pyrographer. Lora S. Irish, Pyrography Artist, Author of Little Book of Pyrography
