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 live in a little log house in Montana. It snowed all day today. A perfectly wonderful day to pull out the paints and brushes and create something special. My dog Cowboy went outside several times while I was painting and sat by the Christmas tree that we have covered with cranberries for the birds.
He would put his nose up into the air and stare at the big Montana sky and I think...yes I truly think he was praying. I think he was praying for Peace in 2013.
Cowboy is often my muse in many of my paintings. This dog doesn't look like Cowboy, but he sure has Cowboy's heart.
