Let me take you on a journey into the natural world. Don’t be fooled ~ we are not hiking through mountains, trekking across deserts, or sailing the high seas. In fact, most of our adventures actually play out in and around my Midwestern suburban home. Even though my young children and I rarely stray far you will be amazed by all of the magic and beauty we have discovered, sometimes right in our own backyard.
This visual field guide is a sweet collection of nature art and explorations documented through the eyes of a Parent, who also happens to have the heart of an Artist. I use the basic concepts of collecting, making, and exploring to connect myself and my children to the great outdoors. This book will give you the confidence and inspiration to begin your own journey or give you a renewed sense of optimism and a shift in perception if you are already well on your way. Read on to view simple yet beautiful ways to create a more natural lifestyle for you and your family.
