Allison Lake Handmade
Allison is a prolific crafter who began her artistic career at age seven when she created colorful light catchers out of crayon shavings and waxed paper. Her crafting roots sprung from her grandmothers, one a fine painter and the other a quilter.
Growing up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains provides inspiration not only for her art but also with living a sustainable lifestyle. She is passionate about creating a greener world and minimizing her family's footprint through composting, gardening, canning, garden to table cooking, recycling and creating art by upcycling materials as much as possible. Her paper bead earrings and Angel pendants are created from upcycled wallpaper that is painted by hand and rolled into gorgeous beads. Allison hopes you enjoy and embrace her art with the same love she pours into her craft.
