Collection: Jane Markham

I have a Master’s Degree in English literature from University of California, Riverside. I taught high school & college for several years. I also enjoyed my students in “English as a Second Language” for Nevada County Adult Education & I hosted a “Memoir Writing for Seniors” class where we shared our life stories.

I was ‘the Tree Lady’ for 29 years, teaching 3rd-6th grade students in Nevada & Placer counties about our forests and the importance of trees in our daily lives—from the air we breathe to the homes we live in, sustainable forestry is the key.

My late husband, Sandy, & I worked together for 20 years & created Mountain Exotics dedicated to salvaging & preserving our beautiful local Northern California hardwoods from decay or destruction. After he passed away 12 years ago, my family & I have carried on his legacy of fine woodworking craft.

In our foothill shop we have brought home burls & slabs to seal & air dry naturally. We mill all our own wood through the process to exact specifications for each one of a kind art piece.

Our major focus is bringing out the incredible grains & patterns in the wood; we say “We let the wood talk!”
