Welcome to Boot Tree Ranch !!! I know this looks funny, just think how we felt after we bought the property and found this. When the grandkids visit, they like to make up stories. "An old cowboy was running away from a mountain lion, and climbed in to the tree to get away, and lost his boot." Lots of fun and laughs along with some wild ideas. The Old Oak Tree has grown all the way around and encircled the boot.. When we were trying to think of names for our 8+ acres, we decided that no one would have a name like Boot Tree Ranch.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
