In 2015 Sow True Seed decided to design beautiful artwork for 160 of our seed varieties. We reached out to the gardening community for help with the artwork and were humbled by the awesome response. Seed is beautiful! Over the next year we will be highlighting all of these wonderful artists. Please check out their work and support them if you can! Follow them on Social Media, comment below with messages of adoration and big kudos for supporting small business supporting sustainable and responsible agriculture!
Tomatoes Seed Packet Artwork
Sow True Employee Mary VanEgmond was selected to design the artwork for several varieties of our tomatoes seed packets.
What is your favorite medium to work with and why?
It’s hard to choose what my favorite medium is because I’ve enjoyed so many of them, but watercolors have a special place in my heart. I really love the kind of effects I can create with watercolors. They’re so calming to work with and look at.
Why were you excited about this project?
As an employee at Sow True Seed, I’m especially excited about this project. I’ve been wanting our packets to have pictures on them for several years! I’m happy that we are finally able to make that happen, and I can’t wait to see the finished products.
What is your favorite flower and why?
I fully support growing your own veggies, but I have to be honest, my garden is full of flowers. I love pretty much every flower, but my favorite is probably Love-In-A-Mist. I think they are so unique and incredibly beautiful.
