"Flora" is my newest alphabet set. It's currently in a group show at Gallery One in Ellensburg, WA.
I had the pleasure of visiting the gallery last week. It's an AMAZING space and definitely worth the drive from Seattle. I highly suggest a day trip to Ellensburg, it'll be a fun show and a beautiful drive.

In celebration of Washington State’s Arts Education Month, we have invited six regional artists to create a full alphabet series. You’ll find pieces made with cut paper, printmaking, watercolor, carved crayons and more. “A is for Artist” is an exhibition of the illustrated alphabet and celebrates the creativity of both children and adults at Gallery One for the month of May.
