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.
