Some Owls Don't Give a Hoot!



I'm fortunate to share my breakfast with a cute pygmy owl that visits me in the morning.  He makes the sweetest little sounds.  Watch the video and meet my new feathered friend.



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.  quinnwildlifeart.com

A T-shirt can be a work of Art.




This morning it was 6 degrees outside.  As much as I love my work as an author and an artist, sometimes I want to do a creative project just for fun.  With such long winters on the mountain, I need to find projects I enjoy, and not get stuck in the rut of the usual chores like cleaning house and folding laundry.  This is my latest effort.  I painted a shirt with fabric dye.  As many of you know, if it doesn't run away from me- I may have to paint it!





Come west with us and enjoy life on a Montana mountain through YouTube videos, my books and artwork. I'm a wildlife artist and author.
