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.

.~More About The Wine and Food Festival.~

"In the idyllic setting of the Sundance Resort, at the foot of Mt. Timpanogos, a small gathering of tents covers a stellar collection of wines and some of the area’s best chefs and their specialties at the annual Sundance Food & Wine Festival. This low-key event, now in its fourth year, benefits the Sundance Preserve — 5,000 acres that are protected and devoted to ensuring the environmental health of Sundance’s North Fork Canyon. The Preserve, a concept that was far ahead of its time, is a living model for the advancement of sustainability, promoting wildlife and habitat preservation and restoration, watershed protection and numerous other worthy pursuits. It also encompasses the myriad cultural and creative activities that take place on the grounds of the resort year-round (sundancepreserve.org). As for the festival, it’s a mellow afternoon of sipping samples from vintners of the Sundance Label Wine Program, including such luminaries as Selby and Viader — and of enjoying everything from wood oven pizzas to cold soups from area chefs.
If you’re up for it, start the day with a ski-lift ride to the top of the mountain and perhaps a hike over to Stewart Falls. You can also save your energy for eating and drinking and simply ride back down the lift and take in the spectacular view. September 5, noon-4 p.m. Sundance Resort. sundanceresort.com. 801.225.4107."

.~Kathi Roussell.~

Kathi Roussell - artist behind Kathi Roussel handmade jewelry - donated this gorgeous coral cherry earrings. Just listen to the description:
"These juicy looking natural (not dyed), warm, rosy salmon coral "cherries" are contrasted with hand forged oxidized sterling silver stem, leaf and ear wires. the earrings gently swing and swish -- for a bit of urban drama.please note-- the coloration of the coral varies. i am down to the last few pairs of matching coral beads-- these are definitely lighter than the ones pictured. more of a medium to light salmon orange color."

Kathi had the great honor of being a featured seller on Etsy, please take a look: http://www.etsy.com/featured_seller.php?featured_user_id=6162949
