Souther, Author



Souther, Registered Architect, LEED AP, jewelry artist and teacher, takes her inspiration from Montana's rich and varied terrain. Her work as an architect informs the composition of her jewelry. Even as a child her unique sense of structure found life in the dams she built on the creek, the math puzzles she traded in lieu of assignments with her seventh grade math teacher, and the cigar box rooms filled with miniature furniture she made for her sisters and cousins.

In addition to her work as an architectural consultant she is a volunteer site coordinator for Bountiful Baskets Food Coop and, at present, sits on the board of the Billings Ethics Committee.

When she's not working she plays with her dogs, visits friends, cooks, relaxes with her husband Mark, she reads-she's even been known to dance on table tops.
