Inez May Naselroad’s step son, who made door harps, taught her to work with wood in the 1980’s and she has been involved in woodworking ever since. She developed her skills while raising her children, creating wooden nativity scenes, door harps, ornaments and paper towel racks from native hardwoods in Eastern Kentucky.
Inez has a workshop at her home in rural Bath County, Kentucky. She developed her first ornaments composed of scroll sawn elements working with Honeysuckle Vine shop in Berea. Her ornaments and door harps have since been sold in Japan as well as having been purchased to go onto many famous Christmas trees including that of the Governor of Kentucky.
Inez is a juried member of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen and markets her work at regional craft fairs throughout the state.
Works by Inez May Naselroad can be found at the Honeysuckle Vine, Berea; Completely Kentucky, Frankfort; Museum of the American Quilter’s Society, Paducah, Red Bird Mission, Beverly, KY and Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea
