I came here from Colorado 28 years ago. Landed in Lakeside, MT and love it!! From my in-home studio I look up at the Flathead, Swan and Mission range mountains. I see nature and animals every time I lift my eyes! I am inspired by what I see and how it makes me feel. I am blessed with multiple challenging physical aspects and I crave and need a creative outlet.
I dedicated my life to being a nurse. But, I really wanted more time to create. More than 10 years ago, I also owned a Stained Glass Studio and I missed the creative life. Many churches and pubs still display my stained glass. So, in the last two years, I have retired from nursing to pursue my creative business full time. I LOVE what I'm doing now. I took some online courses in goldsmithing and continue to learn and grow my passion every day. I have handcrafted some pieces I am really proud of - but each one gets better and better! The only thing I won't try now - giving up!
