Seeing the Garden Through the Seasons

Here is something new—a talk for garden clubs. Over the past few years, I have had opportunities to give talks instead of workshops, first An Artist's Journey for the Exeter Center for Creative Arts and some college art classes and second, The Handmade Book from Ancient Egypt to Your Library for the South Carolina Association of School Librarians, and I loved it. Creating the talks was extremely enjoyable and both were well-received. I've been spending a lot of time in the garden and out and about with my camera and taking lots of photographs of blooms and blossoms. Celebrations of the seasons have always been important to me and I'm making them more and more a part of my work.

To See a World in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
William Blake

Sometimes we can feel the natural world most deeply when we look most closely. With rich imagery and an artist’s eye, Susan leads you on a journey through the turning of the year. Each season is celebrated with its quintessential plants. There will be a little bit of botany, a little bit of poetry, and lots of inspiration to look with more intention at the world around you.

If you're interested in a talk (I am based in Newburyport, MA), here is more information:
