I am excited to announce my partnership with a wonderful company called VIDA.
As a fine artist, as well as a jewelry designer, I am now able to have my artwork reproduced on tops, scarves, bags, wraps, clutches, tapestries and pillows!
It is so much fun now to create these coordinating collections where I can pair the Garden of Silver jewelry with the fashions.
Green Apples Collection
And a couple of my favorite colored pencil drawings, 'Wading River Rocks' and 'Tidal Pool' are reproduced on this racerback tank, mulit-wrap scarf and top. They all coordinate with the Sapphire Drift earrings and Tidal Pool necklace.
One of the best aspects of working with VIDA is their commitment to paying it forward by teaching literacy to their factory workers creating the fashions. As a teacher I love this.
Please enjoy browsing through this collection and sharing it with your friends.

The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is one of my favorite public gardens to visit. I went there on this cold grey day to spend some time inside in their amazing greenhouses. Being surrounded by warm humid air and the scent of tropical flowers is such a fabulous way to enjoy a winter afternoon.
Here are some of the flower photos I took during this trip.
I have taken botanical illustration classes at this esteemed institution for the last few years and am determined to, one day, finish the program and obtain my Botanical Illustration Certificate. There aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that I am passionate about!
Here is my 'Iris' colored pencil drawing.
