Courtney Matteson is the daughter of Cheryl Dalsanders and the late renowned wildlife artist, Bruce Matteson. A graduate from the University of Washington with an extensive background in design, she considers photography to be her greatest passion.
The Pacific Northwest can be seen and felt in her images and in her paintings, as it is a constant source of inspiration. Her sense of adventure and love of nature is deeply ingrained in her soul. Whether up to her knees in snow or hiking in the pouring rain, her quest for the perfect shot always prevails. She resides in Kirkland, Washington, in a restored farmhouse.
