Rosella Mosteller’s black-and-white photography brings the essence and feeling of nature to your touch and sight. Her desaturated images capture the emotive value of being in the present space and time when her photos were taken.

Mosteller’s writing educates and inspires. Her stories spiked with humor could spark a reader’s day!

Mosteller has a strong education in the visual fine arts beginning with the School of the Art Institute Chicago and ending with the Academy of Art University, San Francisco where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Scholarship honors connected to both of these exceptional institutions recognized her and her work.

Currently Mosteller volunteers as an art guide and docent respectively at the Missoula Art Museum and Hockaday Museum of Art, Kalispell. Eight years ago, Mosteller began a Cultural and Art History Club. Group members explore art in depth as they challenge each other to continue learning through research and monthly discussions. Annually, the group travels to a destination, such as Chicago or New York City, for a live, up close art and culture experience. 

Her work is recognized by the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Wyoming and the State of Montana through their permanent collection.

North by Northwest recently juried Cottonwood into an exhibition at the Yellowstone Art Museum, Billings, Montana. Just released Mosteller’s timeless book Montana: Mountains & More is wowing those that peruse between this volume’s covers.
