My kindred spirit, sketchbook addict, and travel companion, Lynnea, gave me this gem of an art toolkit. Thank you Firecracker!
I believe in art as a tool for exploration, observation, and scientific inquiry.
I work in the tradition of traveling artists as naturalists and educators. Since 2005, I have focused on painting polar and glaciated regions where I have often collaborated with scientific teams. In the field, I sketch with ink and watercolor, and collect multimedia recordings to build my palette of place, a record of experience, climate, and color. I develop this work into studio paintings for exhibit as well as presentations and workshops for audiences of all ages to cultivate observation, scientific inquiry, and environmental awareness.
Which... well... wow! On her website's Shop page you will find this kit and several others.
Rock on Maria! You are an inspiration!
