Most everyone believes that Santa is a jolly ol' guy all the time. But sometimes Santa is just like the rest of us, and he gets a bit teary eyed when he reflects on some of the injustices that go on in this world. The good news is that Santa doesn't stay sad long, as he he knows that he can't fix everything! So he gets busy doing what he can to spread joy, hope and peace to all he can reach.

It is a good question to ask ourselves each day: What can I do today to make the world a better place?

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
