ASBA Silver 25th Anniversary & my 15 year anniversary being a botanical artist.  My silver painting of the rare Hill Country Wild Mercury is in their commemorative catalog.



My display at the Herb Society of America in Austin several years ago prompted a call last winter from the editor of their journal, The Herbarist. They wanted cover art for Salvia, their theme for the issue, and this graphite portrait of the beautiful Autumn Joy is what I came up with

 In the spring I entered a contest sponsored by the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council and the Gallery at Gruene Lake Village. I entered my Pale Blue-eyed Grass and won first prize as Comal County Artist of the Year!


“DEEP ROOTS”- Botanical Medicine from Plants to Prescriptions- Artwork from “Hierbas Curativas” series is displayed in this year long exhibit in the Robert G Mickey History of Medicine Gallery of Texas Medical Association.  The exhibit has been extended until September 2018
