Welcome Our New Member - Denise Swayne

My entire life I have enjoyed drawing and painting.  Then along came the love of gardening and a fascination with Botany,  I received my certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration from The Brookside School of Botanical Art in 2010.  Before that I trained as a Master Gardener in Maryland  and have been involved in Federated Garden Clubs for 20 plus years.  Growing, arranging, drawing and painting plants, fruits and vegetables are pure joy for me.  I am always excited to  learn new techniques and gather interesting information.  Most of my work is in watercolor, but I do use colored pencils and graphite.  Commissions are welcome.
