me on my 50th birthday


Howdy from the Sierra Mountains!

I currently live in one of God's beautiful gardens - the Sierra Mountains in northwestern Nevada near Reno/Tahoe - I also lived for several years in the Rocky Mountains and loved it! A native Texan, I know what it's like to have scorching heat (you can fry an egg on the sidewalk and I have done it), twisters (seen more than my share), flash floods (who dumped the bucket?) and ice storms in the same day. Give me fluffy snow and Rocky Mountains anytime!

I have been a volunteer wildlife naturalist (at Rocky Mountain National Park and at Colorado State Parks), learning about nature and wildlife in Colorado. Here in NW Nevada, I am surrounded by open BLM land, wild horses and of course, the beautiful Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park, just to name a few.

When I first moved to the Rocky Mountains, I quickly became an avid photographer - nature and wildlife - also a "beginner ornithologist" (that's a "bird geek" for you Texans). As such, I have several bird and animal photos to display.

My main website, http://janetmariespage.blogspot.com - is new - and the best place to see my needlework and links to artwork. I am available for comission work - and, my artwork and photography are also available for purchase - check out my site for more details.

May God's peace be with all of you.
