Montana Mountains, motherhood, and beautiful fabrics!
What's the hardest thing about being an artist?
There just isn't enough minutes in the day to create everything that I want to create.
How do you combat creative blocks?
I try to refocus, go back to the basics, bake cookies and take inventory of all that I am thankful for.
What makes you feel alive?
Dance parties in the kitchen while cooking dinner with my kids, seeing the first snow, the fragrance of spring, snowboarding at Bridger or an early morning run.
Who (or what or where) warms your heart?
My studio dog, Ziggy, seeing my kids sharing with each other and Gilmore Girls.....
