This will be my third year at the Great Western Living and Design Show held in Great Falls, Montana ( Centered around Charles Russell’s birthday, the town of Great Falls will host multiple art shows as part of Western Art Week. The dates for this years art week will be March 14th - 17th where the town will bring in more than 500 artists from all over.  


Join me at 4 Seasons Arena in ExpoPark for the largest art show in Montana. You can find me in booth (60/61) where I will have several fun stories to share along with two books featuring my photography. 


Most Trout Don't Read, Lessons from Time on the Water is the newest book, just released in January.  This is a fun collaboration with my husband Scot Bealer which has been in the works for more than four years.  Well, it is finally here!  Scot will be with me at the show, so you can stop by and meet the author and purchase your signed copy.

WOW, This book is an amazing read! If you are just starting out in the world of fly fishing, or even if you've been at it for several years, this thing is packed with insightful information. The Author does a wonderful job of explaining some of the ins and outs of fly fishing, but does it through sharing many of his adventures, experiences, and mistakes in the world of fly fishing. This book will not disappoint, and the photography that goes along with it is simply amazing...Get your copy today!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, entertaining, and useful

I received this book as a gift and enjoyed it very much. The writing, photography, layout, and physical construction are superlative. As the author notes, it's not an instructional book for beginners, but has observations and tips for all anglers. Best of all, it's a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!

Reviewed in the United States on February 13, 2024

Whether you are a longtime angler or just picking up a rod for the first time, you will enjoy this book, and learn a lot by reading it. Photography is fantastic, and the multitude of stories are short and to the point, easy and fun to read, and share the knowledge that would take a lifetime on the water to learn on your own. Highly recommend this book!!!



Also available at the show will be this adorable board book for young kids aged 2 - 6.  One of several new books from Farcountry Press's "Babies" series which features 13 of my photos of baby marmots doing all things marmot.  



Be sure to take your time exploring for all the new pictures I will have at the show.  Here is a sampling of my newer fine art prints which will be featured in my booth.  




I am delighted to be a part of this annual celebration held in honor of the legendary Charles Russell. Hope to see you there,
