I am a certified herbalist. I love herbs. I fell in love with their healing powers when I was 20 years old. I wanted a more natural well to tend to my body in times of illness. I also love their fragrance, energy and flavor. As an artist, I often use plants in my artwork, either as the subject matter, in collage, or even dried and applied to my canvas or wood. I spend a great deal of time outside absorbing the healing energy of the sun, and earth. A few years ago I began doing plein air painting classes at Lavender farms. Lavender farms are wonderful, but I'd like to see sage farms, and basil farms, or lemon balm farms, but I guess no herb is as spectacular in a row as lavender.
This summer I will be going to Mad Lavender Farm in New Jersey to do a Mixed Media canvas art class. This farm is wonderful! They do a lot of Yoga classes, with goats. This is a very interesting combination which people seem to get a thrill out of. The owners also have a wonderful shop with delicious lavender products. There is an Indian Ti-Pi, and beautiful gardens. I would be happy to see you there!
