Tilden Art Exhibit 2016

January 5 – February 28th

I am always looking forward to exhibiting with the Nature Journal Club.  This is an inspiring group of artists of every level and age.  Inspired and lead by the illustrator, John Muir Laws, we meet on a regular schedule to take a workshop or get out on the land and make observations.  Thanks to those at the Tilden Regional Park for making this happen for the Nature Journal Club at the Environmental Education Center.
