I have been a botanical artist for over 16 years and my work has been exhibited nationally. I have been teaching extended botanical art classes for over 7 years at several art centers and have taught workshops at other venues. My teaching philosophy is to help students make the science/art connection while developing their artistic skills and learning about the wonders of nature.
