I have been an artist for 28 years, but it has only been the past five years that I have taken the deep dive into sustainability, botanical palettes, and organic recipes. I have been researching mycology and participating in residencies to learn directly from scientists, biologist, mycologists, anthropologists, color practitioners, marine biologists, and a variety of artists and creators who are making changes in the world through their art. In my workshops, you will learn why trees are important to artists in the creation of botanical painting. We will touch on the physics of color and learn how to create color from fall leaves, fruits, flowers, and a variety of other organic materials.  In addition, each class comes with a DIY jar. This jar (pictured to the left) has curated materials inside, including mycelium.
