So here I am, in civilization. I am going to devote my time to working on my art. We actually transported 2 years worth of great wool with us, so I can continue spinning and weaving with the wool I am accustom to. I also now have the time to give this blog an honest go. Farming took just about every spare minute I had.
City life is not too bad. I have found some wonderful thrift stores with great clothes that just need a little sprucing up and refashioning. You will start to see some of my thrifting adventures posted here. I already have a large collection of denim that I want to transform into something spectacular.
I also haven't worked in polymer clay for a long time. I hope to bring that back as well. This blog will be about all of my art adventures. I will keep the farm stuff up as a pleasant memory of things past.

Hi, I’m Kimberly Prud’homme, and Artisan Meadows is my micro-farm nestled in the serene farm lands of western Tennessee. The farm allows me to create a resilient, organic, and self-sufficient way of life, but it also provides a rich source for all sorts of artistic endeavors.
My specialty is wool. I have a pampered flock of sheep that mow my fields and grow prime wool. I’ve developed a wide range of wool products to help people be more creative, get in touch with a simpler way of life, and feel connected with age-old, traditional woolen crafts.
I’ve been a multi-media artist my whole life, working with everything from wool to polymer clay. I’ve studied various techniques, reading everything I can. And am mostly self taught. I’ve written several detailed tutorials, and have been told that I explain things well. I strive to help my fellow wool enthusiasts as much as I can.
Prior to establishing Artisan Meadows, I owned and operated my own horse ranch, raised and competed with show rabbits, designed and grew an elaborate English Garden, and was a registered nurse for nearly 20 years.
