According to my allergist, the outdoors is trying to kill me. So, naturally, I am primarily a nature artist. An abysmal gardener, I console myself by painting plants, instead of growing them. I like to focus on the small things that exist around us that can remind us that the world is full of beauty, hope, and resilience. Whether soft and calming or bright and flowy I process the world I see around me through gouache, watercolor, and ink. I hope you enjoy my work. –Brandi Malarkey
"There doesn't seem to be no need for no one to be contrary when there's flowers an' suchlike, an' such lots o' friendly wild things runnin' about makin' homes for themselves, or buildin' nests an' singin' an' whistlin', does there?" --Dicken, "The Secret Garden"
