About Me

As a little girl I was always drawn to people older than I was. I felt then as I do now that people who walked life's path ahead of me had something important to share. Now that I've reached the middle years (over 50) I am starting to see things from the other side.

About Me

I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads.

In addition to needlework classes, I have also managed the daily activities and taught mosaics, fused glasss and batik classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, WI., for the past 4 1/2 years.

I have classes at Ramsey County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education. I often conduct workshops and demonstrations at special events and festivals in the area.

My mother taught me to do florals, my grandmothers taught me to paint, knit, and crochet.  My sister is responsable for my introduction to the Old School Art Studio and I will never be able to thank her enough.  It is wonderful to experience all the creativity of the individuals who frequent the Studio.   I Love it here.

About Me

Love creating things for gifts and sales. Like to try different ways to up cycle old things into new repurposed items. I'm a musician as well, and love to jam with others, and also do solo gigs. My outings to Afton to the Old School connect me to a community of fellow artists and musicians who I'm growing to love. I'm even going to take my first Champainting class from Gloria soon.

Kate is so welcoming and open, and is always creating! She inspires the best in everyone, and her hope is for everyone to embrace their inner artist and give it a try. 

Oh, and there are edible wild mushroom to pick nearby!

About Me
My free form peyote stitch bead weaving is a pure intuitive energy process of mixing my mental stimulation while working with colorful seed beads, meaningful stones, metal, fiber, found & handmade objects. For me, the mixing of colors is a sensual and spiritual movement.  This color movement satisfies a need to wander, explore, it inspires and takes you into the present moment. I love the ancient weaving technique and the way the beads lock together to form magical patterns and the colors joyfully dance together to form a little piece of art!

Pottery & Glass are my passions.  I have so many things I want to make and not enough hours to get them all done.  I tell friends that "I have a party going on in my head".
