Florida’s landscape is rich with native flowers and plants that only grow here. The state was named FLORIDA for a reason! I started this blog because as a native Floridian myself, I am always learning about, growing & photographing our native plants & flowers. Just because it is growing wild, doesn’t necessarily make it a weed worth killing!
As a native Floridian I feel most at home outdoors in the fields, marshes & woodlands. While outdoors, sometimes I’m a painter – sometimes I’m a photographer. Whichever it is – I am always enjoying what Florida offers.
Plein Air painting (painting outdoors) has been a perfect way for me to capture our beautiful scenery on canvas and also soak in Florida’s wonder. These paintings have a loose spontaneous feel as they are done quickly to capture the moment. However I do enjoy to paint at my home studio too! There I can take more time and get more details in a scene.
