Sydne Spencer's Profile

About

Spencer's Farm is a working dairy goat farm in the hills of Middle Tennessee. I consider my soap an art form as much as my beautiful Nuno felt scarves, and original drawings and paintings. With degrees in Biology, Art, and Engineering, I have a unique, yet analytic approach to all my creations. I make my soap in small lots from scratch with my own individual formulations, never from purchased bases. My soaps, scarves, and animals are felted using hand dyed and painted soft Alpaca wool or high quality Merino Sheep wool with occasional additions of silk, bamboo fiber, or specialty wools, such as camel added for interest.

I hope that my drawings and paintings show my love of the art of technical illustration. My father was a graphic artist who started teaching me to draw when I was only two, and kept coaching me on through technical drawing when he gave me my first job at the age of 15 in his…

I hope that my drawings and paintings show my love of the art of technical illustration. My father was a graphic artist who started teaching me to draw when I was only two, and kept coaching me on through technical drawing when he gave me my first job at the age of 15 in his graphics studio. I ended up building a silkscreen shop for him and running that until he closed his doors. After that, I worked at many graphics companies as an illustrator, silkscreen technician, and graphic artist.

Now, I use my spare time away from my day job as an engineer and between my obligations to my goats to make soap and to keep my skills honed with my paint brushes, exacto knives, and occasional silk screen.

My other love is fiber. I wish I had time to raise Alpacas, shear them, and dye my own fleece, but alas, there are only so many hours in a week, and I just can't find enough time for another set of projects. So, I buy my fiber from local artisans who do have time to dye their own fiber. I appreciate their talents and want to support them as much as possible. So, you will find the results in my Etsy store now and then as I get something made (and am willing to part with it).

The last thing I would like to tell you about me is that I love making things with my hands. It fulfills me. If you want a custom version of anything you see on my site, please send me a convo so we can discuss it.
