Artist by Nature

Artist by Nature was created by a woman who has been drawing all of her life. She moved to this area for college from the beach and draws inspiration from both the mountains and the sea. Her prints mainly consist of botanical herbs in ink with splashes of water color and her jewelry is minimalist with semi-precious stones and sterling silver. Frames and matte materials for prints are purchased at the ReStore to create sustainably complete art pieces ready to hang or pin. This is her first time as a vendor at a farmer’s market and she is beyond thrilled to be a part of one in the county she quickly grew to love. Due to variability in materials, she cannot guarantee the same products (aside from the prints themselves) at every event she is taking part of but if you are in love with a particular piece, she will do her best to replicate it!

    • Prints of their original artwork and hand made jewelry with semi precious stones

Pick up some flowers while you’re at it, and simply enjoy. And stay tuned to see how DGF blooms, as this venture has taken on new management and is just getting sprouting.
