Botanical watercolors

I am a holistic health educator (Doctor of Naturopathy for Healthcare Professionals) who educates through botanical illustrations and art. I learn about the medicinal fruits/flowers/herbs & spices that are local to the native habitat I am in (I travel a lot) and then paint them in a way that interests a passer-by to stop and take a look, thereby, reading about the plant and how to use it, what it is good for, where to find it, etc. I have been doing this in 7 countries so far and am new to the Boerne area and looking forward to learning more about the Texas Native plants and the Hill Country lifestyle in general. I received my Botanical Illustration Diploma through the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland and have been in the health profession for 23 years. I also write for various publications during the course of my travels picking up bits of inspiration and experience from all over. Tying in my passions; holistic health, art and education through traveling and writing is my lifestyle and enjoy being able to do what I love and love what I do!
