About

Montana's hardest working quirk and kitsch curator

Hi. It's me, Marla. I live in Montana, where are huge wheat farms, cattle ranches and podunk towns with tiny bars that have unironic deer-head-and-shotgun-shell decor.

But Bozeman, where I live, is a college town near Yellowstone Park. You can't throw a rock without hitting a hipster or an outdoorsy person drinking a microbrew. (Still, we tend to be 5 years behind Portland and 10 years behind San Francisco, trend-wise.)

I make art and collect kitschy stuff, including birthday candles, plaid umbrellas, 1940s neckties, quirky dolls, vintage nurse romance novels, Horatio Alger books, vernacular photographs, clocks in the shape of TVs and the odd figurine.

Occasionally these items show up in my artwork. Other times they just migrate quietly through our rambling 1930 home.

You can find the cuter version of me on Etsy at Goodwersk: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Goodwerks

    I grew up 12 miles from Bozeman, Montana, where I rode horses a lot and went to a two-room school with only 13 students in 8 grades. I guess I'd say my artistic sensibilities are playful, ironic, mildly menacing, but not scary and not very western.

    A Thousand Arms does great quality silk screen printing for musicians. I love their work so I asked them to print my shirts.
