It was such a huge surprise for me to find out I had won a contest I didn't even know I was in. Thank you to the readers who voted for my art. I'm humbled beyond belief. I am in a group of my superhero-artist-family members. All of these artist tribe-
clan members are my heros. Huge respect and admiration to you all.
Here is a very nice piece about my art, written by the editors of the Bozeman Magazine:
Your Choice Local Visual Artist

Bears (or a T-Rex) on bikes, birds in fishing boats and a yak in a kayak are part of Mimi Matsuda’s Secret Lives of Animals series showcasing her amusing take on regional wildlife. We love Matsuda, a former park ranger naturalist, for her dedication to the world around her and ability to bring animals to life, in whimsical and realistic forms.
