My artwork on the cover of The Essential Herbal magazine.
Tina, editor/owner of The Essential Herbal magazine, asked if I would lend some of my textile artwork for the cover for the Roses issue. Having much from which to choose, she decided on this piece. Actually, this is the center section of a larger piece. The roses I fashioned from wired taffeta ribbon. All the embroidery and beadwork is by hand.
I've also written a short article on roses for this issue. I have written a few articles for The Essential Herbal before. It really is the best grass roots herbal magazine out there. Always something interesting to learn!
