Diane Elliott is a prizewinning poet and author of articles and fiction. Her daughter, Souther, who grew up in Bozeman is a gifted creator of fine jewelry in Boston. These two artistic spirits join Susan Nichols-Roughton in a conversation about their collaboration in an elegant coffee table book that is part Souther’s memoir and part exquisite photographs by Linda Griffith of Souther’s remarkable work. On a cross country road trip Diane captures in Souther’s voice her thoughts and memories, along with Souther’s inspiration for her necklaces, intricate collars and rings. Art & Inspiration is a beautiful, well written book with inspiring stories of an artist and her journey.
