Samantha Graham discovered wood burning in middle school. It was an activity that quickly became a passion for the 22-year-old, who now operates Graham Custom Wood Design.
“I loved it and I wanted to do a business with it,” she said. “I go to craft shows and see the stuff that other people make, and I want to do that.”
Some of Sam’s previous work includes a piece of wood with a wolf burned into it that now hangs in the Equal Opportunities West building. She can burn Jets logos, butterflies and anything else you can think of onto pieces of wood of various sizes.
Sam says in addition to being something she enjoys, wood burning also brings a sense of peace to her life.
“I love it,” she said. “I love the smell of it, and I have high anxiety and it calms me down. It soothes me and instead of being stressed I can zone out and do my own thing.”
