Treasured Montana Artist Statement

“My interest in and love for ghost towns began a long time ago. I’ve visited Virginia City, Nevada City, Elkhorn, Comet, Garnet, Pony, Bannack, and Coolidge.

I’m drawn to the old wood and the log buildings with chinking. The various types of architecture, the fact that the buildings have lasted as long as they have, and the little "treasures" - like old newspapers that were used as insulation still clinging to the walls - continue to fascinate me.

Part of my photographic journey is to learn more about the towns and the people who lived in them. I look forward to traveling and researching the history of each town while documenting my excursions with photographs. I have a list of "must sees" and I’m sure it will grow as I continue to explore our Montana mining history.”
