This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Oris Dahlen was born June 7, 1918, at her parents farm North of Saco, Montana.  She was the daughter of Andrew and Oral (Crantz) Strommen.  She attended grade school at the Huntley School near the farm.  She graduated from Saco High School where she was proud of being a drum majorette. She also played one season on the boys basketball team. She then attended one year of Havre Normal College.

Oris married Lyle Haynes in 1938 and later divorced.  They had two sons and ranched North of Saco on the Milk River.  She was an able cowgirl and told many stories about her favorite horses. 

During this time she began doing oil painting, mostly of scenery and wildlife.  She painted on
anything that was handy, sometimes glass or cardboard.  In 1957, Oris married Roger Dahlen. They lived in Great Falls, Montana where she began to paint seriously.  They eventually started touring all over the U.S. selling and promoting her paintings that began to lean more toward Western and Cowboy scenes.

She was one of the artists in the first C.M. Russell Art Show and Auction.  In 1974 Oris and Roger moved back to the family ranch North of Saco where she continued to paint. She was featured by Leaning Tree Greeting Cards and her paintings and prints continued to be in demand.

Oris was always ambitious, not only painting but also doing yard work, gardening, and cooking. Her home was always spotless and a showpiece of collectibles and varied house plants.

Oris Strommen Dahlen, 85, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, November 9, 2003 in Saco Montana.
