Thank you for coming by for a visit! I am a Fine Art Photographer, with a Graphic Design and Art Direction background spanning 30 plus years. A little bit of each profession goes into every piece I create. My career has taken me from Los Angeles to Seattle to now "somewhere in the middle of Montana". For more than a decade I've lived in a home on the range where my subject matter has expanded even more. Once a city girl in high heels photographing regal crowns and garden florals I can now be found in cowboy boots in the middle of fields or rugged landscapes to get the perfect wildlife shot!
My starting point is photographing my subject matter and then combining my three areas of expertise, art, photography and graphic design giving my images a painterly, timeless, dreamlike appearance. With my love for graphics and the written word, sometimes I will add sentiments that speak to my heart, and hopefully yours as well, And then again, because we all know a picture says a thousand words, I have many images that feature just my art.
Along with Open Edition Art (Art as you see it), I also offer one-of-a-kind hand Embellished Sparkly Art (made to order), layered with all manner of sparkly goodness. A fateful day occurred about 15 years ago when my bracelet accidently fell on to one of my pieces of art, and the idea to add all things sparkly to my images was born! (see my "Sparkly Art" section)
From crowns to cupcakes, llamas to longhorns and anything and everything that speaks to my heart, my desire is that through my art you will be encouraged, inspired and know that you too are a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
I vividly remember at the young age of four, setting out to make the world a happier place by painting a mural on the back of stinkbugs. I know, weird, huh? I couldn't wait to set them free to go show their friends and families. I've continued with that exact same mindset,just making this world just a bit more fancy one piece of art at a time :)
MY PROMISE TO YOU
I have endless, bottomless, creative energy and I willnever, not ever, stop creating unless I get swallowed by a whale, although even then it’s doubtful, as I’m sure I could come up with some one-of-a- kind mixed media images in there :) !!
My style seems to flow through all my different collections and cause unlikely combinations at times. For example, my customers commonly will order a crown, a longhorn and a cupcake for their walls and somehow they all work together! An art collection of a little bit of this and that can be a fun way to show all the different aspects of your personality and makes for an eye catching eclectic gallery !
With my profession taking me from Art Direction and
Graphic Design for the Music Industry in my native Los Angeles to Seattle where
I photographed and created art for iconic Seattle Street of Dreams, Chateau Ste.
Michelle Winery and The Seattle Seahawks families as well as hundreds of others. My
specialty in Seattle was the vintage style of hand-tinted photography, an art passed down from my great grandfather. I then was asked to create
art pieces that had the same dreamlike feel to go with their portraiture art, and that is were my current style of Fine Art Photography was born. After moving to Montana over a decade ago, my subject matter has expanded even more including all kinds of animals and nature scenes, adding to my ever growing collections of art!
