We first visited Simon Jackson back in 1992. The rural Fayette County, TN artist showed his talent for recreating barns, homesteads and other buildings. On our follow-up visit, more than 20 years later, we discovered that Simon is on a new creative mission. He's replicating miniature military rifles from America's war history. It's a fascinating story of a humble, yet extremely-talented artist who loves new "small" challenges Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more about Simon Jackson - Miniature Artist.

Some times real life gets between us and the things we are passionate about. But, if we're lucky, we find a road back to those things. Ren Harvey is a good example. As little girl, she loved looking for arrow heads and making drawings of them. But it took decades before Ren found the road back to those things. Tennessee Crossroads recently met this Nashville artist who is using her talents to help correct the history of people who disappeared long ago.
