Welcome!

My name is Constance and I'm so glad you have joined me on my art journey.

When a friend suggested that I try botanical illustration, I didn’t know how fun it would be to study and dissect a Hibiscus plant,  draw out all of its different parts, and learn to put together a beautiful composition - all in graphite - God's creation is so amazing!

 
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
— Psalm 96:11-12

This website is a documentary of my personal journey in art.
It is my desire that as you read and create along with me in my daily findings,
you too will be inspired to begin your art journey.

I love graphite, but it's not the only medium I love to work in...
Give me a piece of black charcoal, a black Stabilo pencil and some white Gesso
and I am in Heaven!
