Going to live in Big Sandy, MT

When I was a little girl my dad bought my brother and I each a horse.  My horse was named Fancy That.  My dad named my brother's horse Red Hill Beans because he had spots on his rump that reminded him of a crop of beans growing on a hill.  I always loved the story behind the name.  One night I dreamt of Red Hill Beans grazing on top of a spring green grass hill under a Montana sky. In the morning, I felt compelled to paint my dream.   I hope he goes to a good home.

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.
