I am an artist, writer, and private pilot from North Dakota.

The name of my business is "Lone Prairie Art Works", which I have had since 1998.

I grew up on a farm not far from the Canadian border. Though I now live in Bismarck, North Dakota, I am a farm girl at heart. I am a writer, artist, and private pilot. I've also been a pastry chef, school teacher, piano teacher, graphic designer, short-order cook, house cleaner, nanny, t-shirt designer, postal worker, newspaper photographer and reporter, secretary, investigator, and copywriter. I have been writing on my own website since 2000, and "officially" blogging since 2002.


I work as an artist and freelance writing in many different mediums (art) and formats (writing). I've written written several books, co-authored books, published a magazine, written blog posts, magazine articles, and more, sometimes as a ghost writer for clients. My art has been sold or exhibited around the country and overseas. My degree is in art and art history.

For personal blogging and writing, topics often include:

  • North Dakota / rural life
  • Faith (Christianity)
  • Humorous everyday experiences
  • Online life
  • Work experiences / observations
  • Creative / writing life

Books, magazines, email subscriptions, etc. that you purchase or receive will be of this nature.

Find out more about my art and writing on my website, loneprairie.net. You can view a gallery of art images here.


I have other creative and internet properties.
I also have an online Bible study group on Facebook. It is a private group. If you are interested in sincerely connecting with others who are believers in Christ or would like to participate in online Bible studies, contact me and include your Facebook profile link.


I will respond to legitimate correspondence as best I'm able. I do not do phone calls.

I am on social media, but not enthusiastically. I probably won't respond to you there.
