Helen Tolliver lives in Billings with her husband Ben. A graduate of Rocky Mountain College with a Bachelors of Science Degree, Helen enjoys both science and art and pursues her creativity in many facets. She enjoys working with metals, watercolor, mosaics and stained glass, to name a few. Since the age of 12 (her favorite age at which she remains to this day) she has had a flair for all things artistic.
Her favorite stones include jasper, jade, turquoise and bronzite. Anything that is earthy fits Helen’s palette well. This artist enjoys using textures and novel designs in her work. She even hand makes the cards that her jewelry is displayed on using walnut dye and copper embossing powder with hand torn paper. While not soldering a bezel or hammering copper on an anvil, Helen and her husband find plenty of things to do thru ownership of The Frame Hut & Gallery as well as inspiration in the great outdoors as they travel the scenic back roads of Montana.
