Stone Art By Terry Joe Sledd

Visual Artist


I was born clubfooted, and at the age of 18 my left leg was severely damaged from an accident. At first I tired to put up a wall. Embracing my story brought out other stories. A whole new world opened. Book arts help me to live with my story and hopefully will help others embrace and communicate their stories. . . I have studied at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina and Arrowmont School of Arts and Craft in Tennessee. I have taken many workshops with several well-known mentor book artists like, Daniel Essig, Dolph Smith, Jana Pullman and Carol Barton.
