Check out my new earth art article in one of my favorite magazines, Resurgence. It’s an inspiring international magazine about the environment, art, alternative education, spirit and sustainable living. This article is written by myself and another British Earth artist, Cea Blyth, in the March/ April edition.

Earth Paints coming soon

My husband, Drew, and I are in the exciting beginning stages of starting a new business called “Earth Paints.” We’ve developed a water-soluble earth paint kit for kids and adults and an earth pigment oil paint kit for adults. Each kit will include a booklet with information, nature-based art activities, tips to take all toxins out of your studio, the history of earth paints and more. These paints are completely earth friendly, non-toxic and make beautiful, creamy colors. As we grow, we want to add in earth pigment watercolors, pastels and soy & earth crayons. More info and website to come… stay tuned.
