mycelium as a medium, and create unique paintings that are sustainable and non-toxic. 

About the workshop

My mission as an artist is to inspire others to use healthier materials for a healthier world. I have been an artist for 23 years, but it has only been the past few 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. You will understand color from nature's perspective 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 right) has curated materials inside, including mycelium. We will also learn about the practice of ikebana to provide structure to the practice.
