Meet Darla Worden
Darla Worden is a WiesnerMedia vice president and editor in chief of Mountain Living and Colorado Homes & Lifestyles magazines, founder and director of the Left Bank Writers Retreat in Paris, as well as the Wyoming Writers Retreat, and a journalist, writing articles about art, architecture, travel and the West.
In addition to COCKEYED HAPPY: Hemingway’s Wyoming Summers with Pauline, she is the author of Road Shoes, a novel, and co-author of The Rusty Parrot Cookbook. A second Hemingway-related book is in the works. She lives in Denver, Colorado.
Meet Tyrel Johnson
Artist Tyrel Johnson creates work that tells a story, often times one that resonates with childhood. Tyrel Johnson’s sculptures capture moments frozen in time. A draft horse strains against a burden. A lynx pauses, alert. A woman encounters a whitetail stag. Each piece encapsulates a story, calling the viewer into its world. “My goal,” says Johnson, “is to hit people in a familiar place that’s warm, or that resonates with their childhood.”
The youngest of 16, Johnson grew up watching his father and siblings sculpt and working on castings at his father’s foundry. His destiny as a maker now plays out in bronze, stone, and wood in his studio in Billings, Montana.
