Such a lovely botanical print. The California poppy and European cornflower together remind me of my duty, as a gardener, to give equal if not more space to the beleaguered indigenous species of California.

About

Wildlife in Watercolor

As a small child I taught myself to draw animals and loved making things with my hands. My grandmother lived near the Metropolitan Museum of Art and I remember the excitement of viewing paintings there.

I never formally went to art school, and spent spent years traveling the world and wandering through many unfulfilling jobs. A turning point was a trip to India where I studied yoga and meditation and spent hours drawing the local plants in pen and ink. Over the years, I've learned many techniques, but I try to forget them all when I’m painting. I prefer to work from live subjects. My process is a bit unforgiving and requires quickness and lightness.

Now I live in the countryside with a pond, a meadow, a forest, chickens, ducks, a husband and a few cats. As I learn more about endangered plants and animals, I’m interested in highlighting fragile species that may not last beyond my lifetime. I have certificates in Native Plant Studies and Botanical Illustration from the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

For my cards and prints I use the most eco conscious materials I can find, like recycled papers and plant based cellophane sleeves from American sources. I also donate 10% of profits to charities that protect wild animals and the environment.
