Katmai Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes Confluence
Travel, photography and art intersect

A recent trip to visit the famous Brooks Falls brown bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska inspired me to create this website. After going through my thousands of photos, I realized how much these amazing creatures encouraged my creative side. I know there are many people all around the world that share the same love and affection I have for these bears, and my hope is that these prints and art pieces will also bring a smile to your face. A portion of each sale, available through my Betsy Bear Creative Etsy Shop, will be donated to the Katmai Conservancy, in order to help preserve a very special place.

Thank you for visiting and helping to support this endeavor.
