Recently it has come to my attention that quite a few artists who do not live in Montana are claiming to be Montana Artists. Apparently all you have to do is like the state and drive through it and you can claim you are an artist from Montana.
In Montana we only have about six people per square mile. We have more cows and horses than people. Our whole state hasn't got a million people in it and we are the second largest state in the continental U.S.
I'm a third generation Montana. I was born in Montana. I live in Montana and I'm a working artist from Montana. I hope that sets the record straight.
