Friday July 1 from 6-8 pm
Light Refreshments will be served
I began painting at the age of 14 in oils and then turned to watercolors because I love the fact that I can take my small round paint palette wherever I go. I received my certification in 2015 as a Botanical Watercolorist and Illustrator through the Morton Arboretum, Lisle IL. It was in my classes at the Arboretum that I started drawing with pen and ink and colored pencils. I also started working in water soluble oils and love enlarging flowers on large canvasses. I also make jewelry by inserting miniature prints of my paintings into cabochon pendants, embellishing and adding vintage-like charms. I have also discovered that I love making upcycling silk scarves with Wool Felting.
