I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri and now live in Annapolis, Maryland with my two dachshunds and my children and grandchildren close by.
After retiring I wanted to pursue gardening and botanical art. I started taking classes at The Brookside Garden School of Botanical Art and enrolled in an online class taught by Heeyoung. I am so happy to have found Heeyoung and the online classes she offers. She has expanded my understanding of painting techniques, and also the knowledge of flowers and insects. Plus, her classes are a lot of fun.
