Collection: Julie Frederick - Slammin' Jams, Northern Latitudes Gardens and Original Art

Julie Frederick is a multi-talented maker. She is new to the professional art world, though she has been creating works of art in other media for most of her life. She formally began her study of painting three years ago with her instructor and mentor, the famous western artist, Pat E. Baker.

She is, by profession, a clinical therapist working with crisis and trauma. Julie and Pat began hosting weekly art classes as a place for some of Julie's clients to be able to express their emotions in a safe and accepting environment with an instructor that accepted individuals for who they are and not force them into a rote way of painting. Pat became that instructor and mentor. Pat also became Julie's art instructor, mentor and friend.

In addition to her art, Julie also makes amazing homemade jam through her business Slammin' Jams and also grows flowers and makes and sells her own vases through her business Northern Latitudes Gardens. See below for more information on all her businesses and creations:

Julie's Original Art

Even though they are different in their art techniques and approach, Pat Baker taught Julie the value of finding her own voice in art. Julie's favorite subjects are domestic dogs, cats and North American wildlife.  She has produced a number of commissioned works some of which are pictured in her portfolio.  Julie prefers commission work as she is able to add personality to the painting and provide a treasured heirloom for the owner of the pet.  She is presently accepting commission requests.  Julie plans to continue to expand and explore art and especially oils.

Slammin' Jams

Welcome to the home of Slammin' Jams and conserves located in beautiful Kalispell, Montana.  My husband and I started making jams as a retirement project. But as with other areas of our lives, the project soon turned into a business. 

I began making jams when I was old enough to pull the caps off strawberries helping my mother make batches using our homegrown produce.  I remember opening up jars of fresh fruit jams during the cold winter months and breathing in "summer in a jar".   My mother used old recipes handed down from other generations or those recipes she had created.  Slammin' jams recipes were developed in much the same way.  Many old vintage jam recipes included Everclear liquor to preserve fruit.  Slammin' jams recipes took that idea a step further combining high-quality liqueurs and specialty spices with organic fruit and natural cane sugar.  The results were a decadent, rich, unique fruity flavor like no other jams. 

We presently offer 13 varieties of jams and conserves.  You can shop online for Slammin' Jams from our website or find us locally at the Kalispell Farmers Market every Saturday.

Northern Latitudes Gardens

I design one-of-a-kind repurposed vases.  My process is unique, and the vases are waterproof!  I originally designed the vases for my 27 varieties of dahlias along with many Victorian heirloom flowers! 

After months of experimenting, I came up with my own design methods. Last year, I started getting requests for the vases alone.  People were asking me to sign the vases and they were collecting them!!  What you see featured on this site are one-of-a-kind vases for décor and florals. The vibrant colors you see on the site are true colors of the vases.

When your vase arrives, please open it immediately and report to USPS if the item is broken after you take a photo of the item in the box and send it to my email. 

If you live in the Flathead or Lake County area of Montana, or are visiting the area, the 10% coupon you will receive with your vase, can get you a discount on a floral arrangement! I am presently experimenting with shipping dahlias so I will keep my customers up to date on the ongoing success (or failure) of the shipping venture.
