I've been drawing ever since I can remember.
I taught myself along the way, but also invested in structured workshops and classes.
I'm happy to say that I'm still learning!
I have a degree in art along with post-graduate classes in education, but this serves to guide me to better teaching and an appreciation of the artists who came before. I've been a nature journaler for many years.
Drawing is a technical skill but also a creative and inspired tool for learning. Drawing is for everyone.
I can say this because I've taught nature journaling and drawing since 2015, and have seen beginners learn and grow past their expectations in just two months.
I love watercolor and exploring new mediums as well. Recently I taught virtual nature journal classes through the Naples Botanical Garden, spending time online with people from all over the country.
I hope to share what I've learned and inspire others to connect to nature through their personal drawings, photos, and words. This practice has given back to me much more than the time spent you'll find the same is true for you!
About Nature journaling
What is it?
A nature journal can be whatever you like:
A learning tool.
A way to relax.
A creative outlet.
An interdisciplinary exploration.
I use it for all of the above, and sometimes it just turns into a love letter to nature.
This is for any age and any skill level!
My nature journal
uses a combination of images and words that reflect my experience of the natural world in a certain place at a unique moment of time. Sometimes I add maps and photos, pressed leaves or flowers.
Every day, every page is different.
Your experiences will be just as unique!
