I have painted gardens and vistas in watercolor for many years. I find something peaceful and meditative in observing and interpreting nature’s forms. I do not chose to paint well known or necessarily pretty scenes. Instead I paint views I discover for myself that tell me something special about my surroundings. I enjoy painting everywhere—in my backyard and on my occasional travels.
Being part of the solution for the endangered earth I love, the earth that nourishes all plants, animals including humans is so important for all of us. My box design is inspired by my garden where I grow both flowers and some vegetables I eat (another small effort towards healing the earth). I am very pleased to be chosen to design a box for the 60 Boxes Project with its theme of sustainability.
