Gigia in the Eagleton School Garden

 

A California native, I currently lives in Denver Colorado. I began drawing and painting in my early teens, stunned by the beauty of Marin County and frustrated with my lack of skills to portray it.

I am excited and terrified to continue that early inquiry into beauty, hoping to inspire others with awe and respect for the world we find ourselves inhabiting. While I have painted, created small books and monoprints in the past, my current favorite medium is encaustic. 

I have been an eager gastronome, cooking instructor and writer for over 25 years. During my 15 years working with school gardens, I helped  develop the Slow Food Denver Seed to Table program. I have recently completed the first two volumes of the Slow Food USA national school garden curriculum, Good, Clean and Fair in the School Garden.
