After Jeremy and Mary were married, Jeremy tried many projects when Mary was creating her art. He found he enjoyed woodburning.

“Woodburning was fun, but I’ve really found my place with laser engraving,” said Jeremy. “It combines my interest in computers and woodburning.”

Jeremy has been happily designing and engraving for a year.

“It’s really inspiring when artists embrace their creativity,” said Gretchen Violette, Wintergreen’s events coordinator. “I’m happy to have Jeremy and Mary sharing their art with the community.”
