I am the great granddaughter of Montana homesteaders from Flathead and Hill counties. I spent countless hours learning to sew, embroider and quilt, with my grandmother, Florence Vande Sandt, whose parents homesteaded north of Gildford, Mt. in the early 1900's.

A fabulous article in the NYT brought me to Patreon - what a wonderful world for artists.

The summer of 2017 I had the opportunity to spend 4 beautiful days demonstrating in Yellowstone National Park at the Yellowstone Park General Stores. I worked on my free motion embroidery fire quilts met fabulous people from all over the world and had a blast. 

Quilts can be more than just something to snuggle under on a cold winter nite. They can hang on walls, be thrown over a sofa, draped on a chair, hung on a drapery rod, folded in a basket or used as a bed runner . Fiber art is a wonderful array of texture, color and design.

My experience as a wild land fire fighter for 4 seasons 2000-2003 in the west radically altered how I view the world and with it my art. 

Often a piece of fabric speaks to me of what it needs to become right away; other times the idea lingers for years, slightly out of reach. Colors, textures and smells influence my work... like wild land fire fighting, or the sound of the ocean, green sea turtles, the Milky Way viewed from Yellowstone Park, Glacier Park or Haleakala Crater, science, fractals, new grand babies, the smell of coffee in the morning, friends and wonderful old dogs.

Star quilts are still one of my favorites; the radiating colors seem to come from the center of my soul to the outer reaches of the universe.  Art quilts are also favorites, with no rules and random bits sewn together. At its best, my work displays an awareness of the land, of life and of the cyclical interdependence between people and our environment.

Thank you to all my current and future patrons! You are the best!

I've pondered this goal thing for awhile now and it is always changing as well as challenging. I am hoping to be able to create art full time.
