Annie's Astounding Akebias

It's fun to try the unfamiliar.  (Akebia quinata)
I built this composition from drawings taken of one fruit and some leaves on a twig.

This vine grows fast, so I portrayed its vigor in the movement of leaves and fruits.

about the artist

White Salmon, Washington, United States
I have always enjoyed making things - learning to use the tools and properties/qualities of materials. My favorite place to renew is in a Forest, Alpine Meadow, or on a Lake; all are wonderful templates for living simply and elegantly! I started drawing at age 5 and worked in several media, eventually taking a minor in Fine Art along with my Science degrees. Later studies in Fiber, Surface Design, Book Arts and Painting support my work today. I continue to study painting through workshops and perseverance at my easel. I work on location and sometimes in the studio.
