Lindsey Zielke, Bozeman, MT. I love the sky, the clouds, the variation of colors and the endless changes. I am always looking up. I feel like the sky offers a space to get lost in your thoughts and in the textures of the clouds. The sky to me is a lot like art, art offers a safe space to expand and to be who I am without having to answer to anyone or hold back. Art has always been my outlet, my safe space. A little about me. I am a Montana native who moved to Seattle in 2000 to go to the Art Institute of Seattle for Graphic Design. I graduated in 2002 and made Seattle my home for the past 17 years. My partner, myself and our Aussie Rosie recently moved back to Bozeman, MT where I have been lucky enough to focus on painting and doing freelance graphics.

Hi! I'm Olivia Lotz, and I live in Seattle, WA. I am a maker of many things, including ceramics, knitwear, photography, sewing, and watercolor paintings. I am also the curator of Tall Pine Mercantile. A website that was conceptualized with my friends Jesica Waite and Lindsey Zielke on their back porch, over a pitcher of mojitos last year. We wanted to create a place to find unique, quality, hand made items, and be able to learn about the artists that created them. We also wanted to find a way to give back and help women artists from all over the world, which is why we give 10% of every sale to organizations that support those women. I hope you'll check back often, since we'll be adding new artists and goods every month!
