An Artists View of Gardens

Seattle Garden Tour 2018


I’ve had the opportunity to escort several garden tours over the last 15 years. Usually most people accompanying me experience them similarly, taking photos and and asking questions. It is quite a visual approach to the experience. That is not always how people see gardens though, some artists look at things differently than most of us.

Chihuly Garden


I have had the chance to travel with one particular individual three time, Charleston/Savannah, England and more recently the garden of the Seattle area. Judy walks into a garden and gets a feel for it and makes a sketch of something that appeals to her by which to remember it. She sometimes also makes small notes of something she cares to remember. She usually does a quick sketch than in the evening finishes it with water colors.


I love that the world is made up of diverse and wonderful people that keep expanding my horizons and get me to look at the world a little differently.
