Mia DeLode is a fourth generation rancher from central Montana. Born and bred to be part of the rural west, she is an accomplished painter, sculptor and writer of the culture, animals, people and humor unique to Western living. Her paintings appear in many shows, and her writing has been featured in Crazy Woman Creek, a three-part anthology of Western women, published by Mariner books.
Mia has been showing at the C.M. Russell Auction and Show at Great Falls, Montana, since 2006, as well as other national shows, including Mountain Oyster, Traveling the West, Bosque Classic and Fall Roundup at the Museum of Western Art. She was given special recognition by the Great Falls Historical Museum for her work titled “1890’s First Responders,” featuring the last working team of fire horses in the United States.
