Certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration
I am a botanical artist and illustrator certified by Denver Botanical Garden Education Department. My interests have grown through the unique creativity of all mediums while colored pencils have now joined other mediums as a favorite.
While working in the field of art since 1976, I’ve experienced each level of exposure personally. At first through selective juried shows, and the good fortune of earning many blue ribbons for best of show as well as best of category. These successes lead to ownership of a custom frame shop and gallery catering to invited fine art artist. Another positive factor is my works have been collected in private and public collections throughout Europe and the United States.
My eye is especially drawn to the brave wildflower that competes for its place among strong opposition. I feel a particular need to record such strength and beauty. Here is when and where observation takes you on a journey of discovery. Now is my time to record what God has created, a challenge that continually presents itself as in the truth of “seek and you shall find.”
These days you will find me teaching what I have grown to love “Botanical Art & Illustration” knowing first hand that once learned any and all art you create will be improved.
