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.

.~Perrito by David King.~

While at the Sewing and Quilting Expo in Puyallup this past March, I took photographs of my friend Jane bringing David Kings's Art Quilt Perrito to life.  Fusible web applique is so easy to do.  If you can trace, cut and iron you can make this quilt!  You can order the pattern from the Bigfork Bay Cotton Co.
They also sell the fabric kit and matching Aurifil thread!
Take a look at the slideshow and see how easy it was to make this top!

.~My Mom.~

Dear Friends,

I am in California right now. 
My mom seems to be losing her battle with cancer.
Life is hard right now.

I have so much to write, to share...
Maybe when I get home to Montana, the words will flow better.

I don't think life has ever hurt so much.

I will write more later and I have so much to share.

Please say a prayer oxoxo
