Xanthe Walker's Profile

About

My name is Xanthe Walker and I live in often cold central Wisconsin. I grew up in Madison, but I've moved around a bit. I earned a BFA in Crafts from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. My background is mostly sterling and copper jewelry, sometimes incorporating found objects.

It is very satisfying for me to take something that was destined for the trash and turn it into something great! I'm constantly experimenting.

We live in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farm fields, trees, and critters. My favorites are birds. I never tire of watching them. I admire how beautiful, fragile and tough they are.

My kids are fun and inspiring. I get so many ideas from their view of the world. I have both a flower and a vegetable garden, that are a bit neglected lately!…

I work part time at my local library.

When I'm not busy with the family, the garden, the library, and art....Whew! I love to read, play board games, watch movies, cook, and binge watch tv shows on Netflix. I'm a SciFi geek at heart.

If you have ANY questions, please convo me. I'd love to hear from you.
