Growing up in tropical Coconut Grove, Florida I was surrounded by lush, exotic, and colorful botanicals. Now I live in north Florida and enjoy the rich beauty of the landscape from the hills, ravines, forest, and the coastal beaches. My enamel pieces depicting the garden are inspired by the plants
and flowers of the tropics, my own yard, many walks in the woods, and the shorelines of rivers, lakes, and the coast. The botanicals in my enamels can be stylized shapes or realistic renderings.
