I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work

    How DO you do it?!!
    None of my rusticated still lifes seem to convey this homey warmth …

    I love the shadow play between the oven supports and the wallpaper.
    Lovely tones!

  • I think I draw much from memories…this is the kind of kitchen I grew up in on our family farm in south east Nebraska. I get around antiques and I am wisked back to the awesome memories of all the women in the kitchen…Thanks Arla…always appreciate your support…

    I am Not domestic…pots, pans and stoves “scare” me…But, this is a wonderful capture:))

    Barbara in the kitchen right now making veggie soup from all the fresh stuff we both grew and collected this season. She’ll be canning most of day and into the night. Although we never cooked in this type of kitchen it does remind me of one of my grandmother’s kitchens. Nice shot Susan.

  • OMG…Canning, do I ever remember the canning days at my grandmother’s…she had a veg. garden about the size of a football field and the harvesting and canning process is still so vivid in my mind..snapping the grean beans and shelling the peas and sorting the cuks to make the sweet and dill pickles…sorry I could go on and on!! Now you know why I spent 4 hours in this old museum…felt like I was back at my Grandmother’s farm…! Thanks Jim…sorry for the verbal trip through time! (:0)
