This was inspired by the garden at the corner of our block. I was done completely from memory though. I'd like to go back and do some direct sketching of the same scene. The thing about it that caught my eye was the color combination—dark purple, dark green, and sage green. And of course the leaves. Clearly, I love leaves.
I am an artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. I studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I do a little freelance illustration and also sell my work from my studio and at art fairs. I work part time as a graphic designer as well.
My husband, son, and I live in the Longfellow neighborhood.
