Learn about medicinal herbs with an artistic and informative greeting card. The cards consists of watercolor paintings of medicinal plants one can find in their backyard. On the back of the greeting card is in in depth description of the plant including the medicinal properties, parts used, identifying tips, and recipes that you can use in your daily life.
While taking an herbal studies course at the Dandelion Herbal Center in Kneeland, I was inspired to paint a collection of watercolors of local medicinal plants. I wanted to create something educational and visual to aid others as well as my own herbal training.
The process of creating these cards was quite rewarding. While spending quality time with the living plants as I painted them, I got the chance to know them intimately on a physical and energetic level. After each painting I felt clarity between the plant and myself, like I had had a deep conversation with each one.
