Meet Amelia of Mountainside Designs
I claim both Bozeman & Asheville, NC as home!

Where do you create?
In my home studio here in Bozeman
What else have you done, other than being an artist?
My "professional" career is in digital marketing
What inspires you?
I'm inspired by the beauty of nature, especially the lovely mountains that surround us here as well as traditional native american art and designs
What's the hardest thing about being an artist?
Staying organized and keeping to a consistent schedule
How do you combat creative blocks?
I step away from my bench and go outside to take a break and clear my mind for a bit. I find if I try and force things they never come out right.
What makes you feel alive?
Hiking the Ridge and Bridger and looking down on the valley from the tippy-top.... then skiing down!
Who warms your heart?
My two sweet pups!
