I was born an Artist, and I have always enjoyed hiking and exploring the wilderness ever since i first learned to walk. I studied Fine Arts, including six years classes in Junior and High School (with many commissions from Principals and Teachers throughout my tenure as I was paid for my works during these years, and I was employed while still in Grade School as Secretary and Treasurer of the School Office at the tender age of 8 years) During this time while I was a child attending Grade School, I created bulletin boards, flyers, and created Posters hand-painted and hand-drawn which were commissioned works by the Board of Teachers and the Principal......
Later in High School I continued my education in Art by electing Art Classes and received numerous awards and acknowledgements and I was employed by the School and worked closely with the Principal and 63 Teachers creating (at their request) specially designed 'test' papers (with supervision of School Principals and Teachers), and excelled in Stenography, Office Education, Advertising and Design of flyers, announcements, and upcoming events while also excelling in Management of the School's Archives, Storage, Inventory and Supply Rooms all before the tender age of seventeen. I graduated from High School when I was 17 years old and pursued my interests in Art as well as a two year career in Ranch Management where I studied Breeds of Cattle, perfected the art of fence building, branding, feed management, and studied Breeding and Genetics of specific breeds of Imported Cattle and Horses. I lived daily on horseback and many wonderful experiences in my daily life working on this 7 - Section Ranch in Texas.
I continued my studies with a Minor in Fine Arts at the University Of Montana while Majoring in Geology.
I have been honored with Commissioned works by many Organizations, Churches, and Foundations.
Excelling in business design and advertising, I have published Manuals, Newsletters for various companies and law firms in the
United States, National Associations, and hand-created works of art for Logos, Business Cards, Stationery, Brochures, Flyers, Magazines and Newspapers.
Upon request I have appeared as Guest Speaker at Chamber of Commerce meetings in various Counties.
Employed by the Counties as Representative and Superintendent of the Fairgrounds.
Livestock Leader representing the University and State of Montana and appointed Judge of County special events,
including parades, horticulture and livestock shows.
In my career I have represented Attorneys and Law Firms, International Telecommunications, International Marketing and Broker,
Law Enforcement Officers and K9 Service, Architects, Developers, Real Estate, and Sales.
I have been successful and received honors for top sales as a Certified Sales Consultant for Toyota and Honda Dealerships in two states, Washington and Montana, with additional Certifications in Isuzu and Pontiac.
My personal interests are varied and are as multi-faceted as is my personality!
I see things many people do not see, I recognize those things many people see that I have not seen before. And I take notice
I am greatly influenced by my norse, english, irish, german and native american heritage both spiritually and in my art. i dream in colours and i am influenced in my art by my life as well as the great masters of impressionism and fauvism
Paintings: I specialize in painting landscapes, seascapes, mythology, portraits and nudes. I prefer acrylics and watercolours, but i also love to mix media and create artworks combining watercolours, acrylics, inks, prismacolours, and many unusual media like lipstick, glitter gels, enamels, jewels, anything that moves me. I paint canvas, paper, rocks, driftwood, bones, seashells, etc. and i weave dreamcatchers and create mandarins.
Photography: nature, wildlife, florals, macro and many other subjects. I use a Canon EOS 50D, Sony Cyber-shot 8.1 and Minolta Weathermatic
