Rachel M. Goble
Hello and welcome to my site! I am glad you could spend some time to learn a little bit about me, what I love to do for a living, and understanding what secret woodland guardians is all about. If you want to know more about whats going on in my life please check in with the blog portion regularly!
I have been learning, and creating, various pieces of art ever since I was a child, and nothing makes me happier than creating beautiful pieces of art that other people can enjoy.
I started working with concrete about 5 years ago at Landscape Structures Inc. There I tailored my abilities by creating custom, large and small, concrete playground pieces. Concrete isn't really the easiest stuff to work with, but it does push my creative abilities to create incredible 3D pieces. With this knowledge and experience I decided to spread my love for concrete to others with custom, interesting, and creative pieces.
Secret Woodland Creations is the byproduct of my love for fantasy, concrete, nature, and the color green. Tree-men have always been cast in a certain light for other fantasy lovers, and I wanted to put my own creative spin on the apparitions that guard, and look upon, us in the woods.
Each piece is hand crafted by yours truly, right here in Minnesota, and I make sure that each one is given as much attention needed until I think it looks just right. I do not like to rush projects in order to give you the very best quality from each piece. Everything I make is extremely weather and temperature resistant.
