Vendor Biography

A little about Me:  Photography is my first love.   Wildlife, Flowers, and Landscapes, are my favorite subjects, but architecture also intrigues me.  I am always looking for a unique perspective & try to share it with all who see my work.  My goal is to capture moments in time with my work.   I am also a graphic artist with bold renditions of my photography on selected pieces.  Some pictures just beg to be played with and altered.  Those become my graphic images such as the Bowl & Pitch Suspension Bridge from Spokane that just won the People’s Choice Award in September 2020, at the Jansen Art Center Gallery.  In my spare time (LOL!) I do paint!  I prefer Watercolor for floral scenes and Acrylics for abstracts.  I am a self-taught artist who learns from and is inspired by my fellow artists.  I teach occasionally at the Allied Arts Gallery as well as other locations.  My passions are God, photography, gardening, traveling & family.  I make my home in the Great North West.  Unplug from life & take a journey with me through my moments in time.

Where you can find my work:  My work is hanging in businesses; Skagit Valley Hospital, United General Hospital, Mira Vista, & private homes throughout the US, and Canada.  I have been published in multiple publications. I show at several shows throughout the year in WA & Western States.  My work is available & sells through an On-line Gallery – Fine Art America @ http://louise-magno.pixels.com/  This gallery provides both fine art such as metal prints, archival prints, & giclee canvas prints as well as functional art such as pillows, blankets, mugs, etc.             I also have a store on Amazon @ www.amazon.com/handmade/natural-moments-studio  which sells my cutting boards, magnets and mouse pads.
Stanwood WA – The Picnic Pantry & Parlor http://www.thepicnicpantry.com/– This really fun store features the work of ~12 local artists as well as everything you might need for your kitchen, party, or your next picnic!
