I cannot imagine life without a garden. My garden is the main inspiration for my art. I've gardened in pots on rooftops, on my windowsills, in a community garden and in my own backyard. Every garden I've ever grown has been a source not only of food and beauty, but also of joy. Garden visitors and other bits of nature add their own magic. My favorite style of garden is a potager or kitchen garden where flowers and herbs and fruits and vegetables grow side by side in a happy patchwork of scents and colors and textures and tastes. So many bits from my garden inevitably find their way to my studio where I capture their colors and textures with layer upon layer of transparent watercolor.
