Welcome to my botanical arts blog.
I am a botanical illustrator, trained at the Denver Botanic Gardens, in Colorado. I am now a transplant to the gulf coast of Florida. I am discovering tropical gardening.
Illustrating Nature is my passion and flowers are a favorite.

What I have been up to around here
I am back..... whew, last week was a rough one. Too many obligations and not enough time. Throw in a bit of stress, and voila.... migraine! By Friday, I was down for the count and it took several days to pull myself together.
However, before I was struck in the head.... I managed to do some work. I finished the piece that I was working on.... actually it's in the 'resting stage' for a few weeks. I have moved on for a bit, but will come back to it.
I took two photos and I just thought that you might enjoy seeing how the flash vs non-flash works. I can't decide which one I like best, but photography can really affect the work.

This week is hectic, as well, so hopefully, I can get into the studio and get some work done. I promise to have something to show, soon.
