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.

I found this card at Open Sesame in California.  The artist's name is Susan Erickson. I just love her style.  To see more of her artwork visit the Lafayette Gallery's website.

I discovered this little fawn crossing the street the other day.  I wonder where Mama is?

.~Eternal Gaze.~

There is something about horses that quiets me.  I could watch them all day and never grow weary.

.~ Tub of Fabric Needs A Home.~

Working on Debi Hubbs Vino Art Quilt design led me to look for background fabric which led me to dump out my stash on the floor which led me to create this tub of fabric that is filled with all kinds of gorgeous fabrics, but I think they need a new home. Anybody interested in buying this entire tub of fabric? If not, I am going to sort it and sell it on eBay. If you want it in its entirety, I will sell it at a good price as all $$$ goes to help finish off paying Cowgirl's vet bill.

.~Domo Arigato.~

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

.~ Live Simply.~

I have a simple philosophy.
 Fill what's empty.
Empty what's full,
 and scratch where it itches.
