Leigh Ann Thelmadatter is an English teacher by training but has apprenticed in the field of Mexican handcrafts and folk art while living and traveling in the country for 16 years. This apprenticeship came through writing on the subject in Wikipedia for over a decade. Almost all the content on the subject in Wikipedia is related to her efforts. This work led to the creation of the blog Creative Hands of Mexico, with a column of the same name in the Vallarta Tribune. She has collaborated and connected with numerous artisans, many of whom have graciously opened their workshops and homes to her and her husband/photographer, allowing them to document their work and stories of exceptional creativity. Thelmadatter currently lives in Mexico City and continues to look for new crafts and artisans to document. www.creativehandsofmexico.org
