“ I am looking forward to a summer immersed in nature. I currently live in Northern Indiana and I miss my time in Northern Michigan surrounded by lakes and trees. The Adirondacks are inspirational for my own botanical art. I love teaching art and look forward to sharing my art experience with ADK campers.”
