I have come to welcome the calm that comes to my life when in the midst of creative expression. Oil painting has become my vehicle to convey on canvas a mood, scene or thought that broke through the everyday to touch my soul. The end result is often a surprise, but if successful depicts a truth from within.

A love of creative expression and experimentation has taken Tabby on a journey from black and white photography, to figurative watercolors, and now to her current focus on expressionist landscapes and abstractions using oils. Tabby’s work is greatly influenced by her black and white photography background; conveying a mood or scene using a limited palette and subtle tonal variations within her compositions. She describes her work as “contemporary expressions of nature’s beauty”, but embraces an occasional figurative or wildlife subject if inspiration or a commission calls.

A self-described autodidact as an artist, her ongoing creative curiosity and refinement of style has brought her work recognition and collectors from across the country. She has been a multi-year participant in the Hockaday Museum of Art’s Plein Air Paint Out, and was a curator of the Museum’s 2015 groundbreaking exhibition, “A Timeless Legacy, Women Artists of Glacier National Park”. She won the Gamblin Award of Excellence for her painting, “The Golden Hour” at Dana Gallery’s 2014 Icons of the West show in Missoula, and has been a featured artist in several Flathead Valley exhibitions.

Most recently she has been painting on large linen panels, which she feels allows her more freedom of expression and artistic impact. The abstract shapes of the Montana landscape that play on the surface of water inspire her “Reflections” series of paintings.
