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.

Wine And Aurifil Thread Pairings: Balance and Strength

Some people pair wine with food as for me...

It is a known fact that I love wine.  And I love Aurifil thread equally as well.  So I took my love of wine and my love of Aurifil thread and brought the two together.  Each week I will spotlight a bottle of wine that I have discovered and pair it with the insatiating colors of Aurifil thread.

Today's pick is a wine from Banrock Station.  I love Banrock's tag line: Fine Australian wines, making an impact around the world. This particular bottle definitly made an impact at my house.
The other wonderful thing about Banrock Station wines is that they support global enviromental projects.  Visit Banrock's website to read more about there more than 95 projects in 13 different countries.
