Hey Art Maker!

Hi Art Maker!

Whether you are a proud plant parent or you have trouble keeping greenery alive, this week’s prompts are fit for every botanical enthusiast (because illustrated plants never die!) And since drawing potted plants is so popular, I decided to keep things fresh by picking a few fan-favorites along with some plant species I’ve never drawn before. I hope you enjoy this week’s prompts.

Let’s GROW!

Something BIG
is coming!

Since you’ve made this far in the email, I’m going to let you in on a little somthin’ somethin’ that I’ve been working on for you guys!😉 I’ve got a VERY exciting announcement (one that I’ve had to painfully keep secret for the past six months.)


But it’s not quuuuite ready yet. I still have a couple finishing touches, only I can’t wait to share all the goodness with you! So enjoy the sneak peek above until the real thing goes live, Thursday March 10th.
