Hello everyone! I want to introduce myself and let you know a little bit about my "eclectic" art experience. I hope you enjoy this website!

I have had a lifelong interest in the arts and started painting by attending rosemaling classes over 40 years ago. This interest evolved through acrylics and “tole” painting techniques and has now come full circle back to oils. I also paint woodcarvings utilizing various mediums.

I achieved my certification as a Teacher of Decorative Art (TDA) and have been teaching classes in oil and acrylics for over ten years. My favorite subjects are floral arrangements and flowers as I am also an avid gardener.

I started creating and teaching gourd art about ten years ago and have held several classes through community education and at Concordia Language Camp in Bemidji. Most recently I started flame working and demonstrate this art in my "Bodacious Beads" booth at various art fairs, shows, and my home studio.

I am a member of Gallery North, Northern Area Artists Association, the Society of Decorative Painters, Northland Decorative Painters, International Society of Glass Beadmakers, and I serve on the North Country Arts & Crafts advisory board.

Welcome to Sanders Studios! I started woodcarving over 40 years ago and recently retired so find I have more time to pursue this passion.

Although largely self-taught,  over the years I have taken a broad spectrum of carving courses, classes and seminars. I enjoy carving whimsical characters and houses, also larger western and Native American busts. Most recently, I have started to create split cedar flutes and have taught several classes through community education, North Country Arts and Crafts Workshop, and private lessons to share this knowledge.

 I am a member of Gallery North, Northern Area Artists Association, Mid-America Woodcarvers and Western & Wildlife Carving Association. You can view my artist profile information on the Gallery North website at:
