My garden provides me not only with beauty and produce, but inspiration for my mixed media art. I utilize a variety of materials including: paints both acrylic and watercolor, vintage book pages, magazine and book scraps, fabrics, found objects, recycled materials, and more. The results are images that are brightly colored whimsical botanical designs, or classical botanical ones in earth toned palettes. Many of my products are what I call functional art. The journals and sketchbooks have hand applied mixed media art and no two are alike.
