Art & Events Coordinator
Marie is a Frame Hut Gallery represented artist from Montana with a history in healthcare. Large oil paintings and encaustic work are her most common forms. Marie enjoys being a lifelong learner and taking classes in many mediums. Her attraction to an encaustic piece led to a journey that has taken her to many unique places and have allowed her to meet many new friends and mentors.
Marie is moved by Jim Carrey and his short video on “Needing Color.” She is inspired by his quote –“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
While in Ireland, Marie was introduced to the work of John O’Donahue & was moved by his blessing – “May I have the courage today to live the life I would love, to postpone my dream no longer, but to do at last what I came here for and waste my heart on fear no more.”

Timber Hardware Co
Timber Hardware Co, was founded in a small garage in the PNW in 2017. I started out making small furniture and selling it online and eventually made it a full time company. Originally from Billings and a MSU grad, I lived out in the PNW for 14 years as a product development engineer for a large aircraft manufacturer.
In 2022 my family and I moved back to Billings to start the same business I was running out here to be closer to family. My wife owns Forever Linked MT, permanent jewelry.
If you want something custom contact me and I will be able to make a custom piece that perfectly fits your space. I can do small and large projects from cabinetry and built-ins to any type of table. I can design the perfect product for your exact space.
Deana Albers Jewelry is a jewelry design and fabrication studio in the beautiful mountain town of Bozeman, Montana. Each piece of jewelry is individually handcrafted employing traditional silversmithing techniques, sterling silver, stones, sometimes gold, copper, or the occasional repurposed Spanish tuna can.
I am a third generation Montana farm girl, with a couple of decades in the trenches of the film business in Los Angeles thrown in for good measure. Now I am back where I belong, with a view of the Bridger Mountains from my workbench and a black lab to ‘help out’ in the studio. More on him later…
I find inspiration in all kinds of places: the natural world around me, the stones I use, historical jewelry, and in travels around the world. Even a good nap can result in an idea for some jewelry, or at least that’s what I tell myself…
My work is simple, modern, and manually manufactured with much love.
Montana based potter, Ona Meyer, has been making pottery since 1997. Ona's passion for pottery began while attending college in Casper, Wyoming for Fine Arts. It was there she learned the skills of making traditional functional pottery wares and how to be a studio potter.
Each piece of pottery is meant to be used with servability in mind. Mastering form and function with mindfulness of everyday use is always present in each piece. She sells her pottery at the Bozeman Farmers Market during the Summer season.
