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!

What is your favorite vegetable to eat and why?
Tomatoes. I enjoy the different varieties.

What is your favorite vegetable to grow and why?
Again, that would be tomatoes. There’s so many different types and each one has a different taste.

Why did you choose the medium you used for the packet design? 
I used markers for the artwork due to the bold colors that pop out on a small canvas.

What is your favorite medium to work with and why?
I use a variety of mediums and I’m very comfortable with them all. I’ve worked paints, markers and pencil. The medium I choose depends on the subject at that time.

Why were you excited about this project?
I love the outdoors and the challenge to come up with a eye catching design for vegetables was fun.

What is your favorite flower and why?
Honeysuckles are my favorite. It’s a Southern thing.

Do you have anything else you want to share with potential customers?
Support your local artists.
