Chauncie is native Montana artist that has been influenced by the sights and sounds of nature. She attended Montana State University taking various art classes then moved to the Phoenix area over three decades ago. She co-owned and worked for seven years at her Decorative Finish and Wall Art business as well as receiving personal art coaching from her professional artist mentor and best friend. Chauncie has been captivated by the South West's unique offerings of nature, as well as its distinct light, shadow, movement and color there. Chauncie finds and photographs her subject matter, then weaves her own design while interjecting her colorful interpretation. She wants to portray that our desert is truly a beautiful place, full of grandeur, alive with it's song of life and color, and it sings to us beyond or normal capacity to see only what is in front of us.
