Botanical Illustration & Creating a Materia Medica

Between the joys of making a new home, and creating my personal and family goals for the upcoming year - I have been refining my herbal interests. Yes, some where amid reading Homegrown Healing by Christine Dalziel and Botanical Portraits by Ann Swan desire and inspiration struck. Then when I signed up for the Herbal Academy's free Herbal Materia Medica course, that inspiration took hold of my dusty nature journal turned personal 'materia medica' and set my pencils to action.


Paired with a lettering reference from the local library and I have all the tools I need to begin...



My art class instruction from high school is a bit rusty, but the joys of sitting with the botanical subject and creating a personalized medica and gardening journal has been so healing. This creative is also helping my educational recall and giving me steam to continue to save for my next course.

~ Blessings!
