My "Artist Journey"


Thank you to all who attended my talk and slide show presentation in Bozeman Montana last weekend. It was a treat to have the opportunity to talk Art & life with you!

My son played the piano music for the prelude, and my daughter added some 'caricatures' to the slide show... It was fun to make it a 'family affair'.

A special thank you to the Bozeman Art Museum, Bozeman Library and Montana State University for the collaboration to make these ongoing "Art Talks" available to the public. It increases Art awareness, and that's always a good thing :)

It was interesting for me to put the talk together - gathering and organizing 'my journey'. I first came to Yellowstone when I was 4 years old and fell in love with Nature and wildlife. Then, at 5 when the Art Cart pulled into my classroom everyday at school, I knew I found my passion. Now, I've come full circle living and creating at the edge of Yellowstone National Park.

In case you missed it, a snippet; some early work of mine from my late teens and early twenties in high school and college...

And a couple of my daughters caricatures...
