Meet Becky of b.handmade Designs
Originally I'm from the Great Lake State: Michigan. But, I have been in Montana since 1993. Now home is where the heart is: Helena, MT.
What do you make?
Comfy sewn specialties, headbands, baby gear, bags and accessories.
Where do you create?
I create out of my studio located in mountains surrounding Helena.
What else have you done, other than being an artist?
Prior to b.handmade Designs I was a fire modeler and watershed science GIS Scientist with both the UFGS and a private sector.
What inspires you?
Positive attitudes, fitness, nature, and gardening.
What's the hardest thing about being an artist?
Finding enough time to create new products. I have a wealth of ideas just never enough time to create them all.
How do you combat creative blocks?
I step away from my work. It's always a good thing to step away and refresh yourself, I've found.
What makes you feel alive?
Good food and great company, traveling with my hubs, long hikes or motorcycle rides, growing my own organic food, motivating others.
Who (or what or where) warms your heart?
My firefighter hubs and my 3 flat-faced French Bullies.
