There are sixteen works in this limited edition fine art portfolio that respect the tradition of botanical art but with a modern take.

Where the great botanic gardens of the past created living herbals and fantastic collections of exotic beauties, the garden documented here has distinctly twenty-first century themes. It has herbs for culinary not medicinal purposes, has many native plants to better utilize the resources naturally available and to create a diverse ecosystem, and has plants whose primary purpose is to benefit butterflies, bees, moths, and birds.

The entire boxed portfolio or individual prints may be purchased (see "BUY" at the top of the page and then click "Individual Prints").
