Artist Statement

Every rock, snowflake, animal and bush has its place in the natural environment. The Rocky Mountains have been my home since birth. I have lived in Wind River Valley, of Wyoming, for close to fifty years. I am focused on the high meadows, forests and the sagebrush flats of the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. My love centers on the land forms, plants and animals, each with their own individual personalities. They are all my friends and equals in the net of life and time.

We went here because one of our kids wasn't feeling too well so we looked for options that were softer than trekking (summers) , and we absolutely loved it . The art work is fascinating and beautiful and varied ...a must visit - esp if its a rainy day :)
