As a young woman in search of a summer holiday away from the big city, Ginger loaded up her car and began two months of wilderness camping with her young children across Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Together they fell in love with the West and within a year were on their way to a new life on a remote cattle ranch in Montana. In this wild place surrounded by mountains, a huge sky and miles from civilization, she fell in love with the spirit of the West. Today her paintings speak gently of her sensitivity to that spirit.
“I am drawn to the western landscape – to that bounty and abundance Mother Nature provides. I don’t intend to chronicle the West; I intend to paint for you in hopes we share the desire to protect this grand land so those who follow will experience its profundity too. I paint a gentle view of our world that in our hurried and angry lives we seldom stop to enjoy.”
