Cory worked for 38 years in Information Technology for Dominion Virginia Power. Her job allowed for some creativity, but not much, so she initially dabbled in folk art and bead making to fulfill her need to create. After retirement, she dove right into several other craft media such as painting glassware, making jewelry of all sorts, pine needle coiling and gourd art. Cory learned how to coil pine needle baskets from a friend’s mother who learned from her mother. It is a very old craft and it’s wonderful that it has continued to thrive for so many generations. Be-jeweling gourds is Cory’s most recent endeavor and she hopes to create many more interesting pieces. Cory is married with two grown sons, Patrick and Mike. Patrick is a Presbyterian pastor in Barboursville, West Virginia. Mike is the Art Director at Journey Group, a publishing company in Charlottesville. Mike has two sons, Gray and Tate, and a lovely wife, Lisa. Other than crafting, Cory spends her time with the grandsons, the loves of her life!
