Welcome to modern life in the wild west. I'm Nancy Quinn, an author and wildlife artist. I live with my family-husband, daughters, dogs, and horses, on a rural mountain in Montana. My neighbors are grizzly bears, cougars, wolves, coyotes, and a host of other wildlife. I share our experiences through my books, art, and YouTube videos, as well as a radio program. Come west with us, enjoy, animal encounters, baking, gardening, crafts, and more.
One of the joys of living in Montana is watching the clouds cast shadows that drift across the mountainsides, touch the peaks, and race away, dissolving into the sunlight. Enjoy this video of the experience, set to some relaxing music.
I'm a wildlife artist and author. I live on the side of a mountain in Montana near the Continental Divide with my family, where I write and paint about our frontier lifestyle. We left Washington D.C. when my husband retired from the military. We wanted a change, of lifestyle and we got it! I admit I'm a fish out of water here, and I'm learning how to blend my city ways with our new rural western life, so, I'm surviving the wilderness in style. Our new neighbors are cougars, bears, and wolves. I hope you enjoy our real pioneer experiences, with wildlife encounters, horse and dog rescue, baking, gardening, art, decorating, landscape photography, and much more. I hope to see you on the mountain, laugh and learn with me.
