I realized that as an artist, I don't just find inspiration in the things around me, I am inspired by everything around me. Every person, place, object, etc. has a story behind it that can be expressed. I strive each and every day to observe and listen to the world around me and to myself. This is the most important factor in my life for creativity, inspiration, and expression.

These botanical illustrations are part of an Independent Study on Louisiana medicinal plants and folk remedies that Isabelle proposed with our Headmaster, Dr. Paul Baker. The final product for this course is a full book of cultural information, a full plant catalog, and original illustrations of the blooming specimens. Most of these are done in watercolor, although there is a mix of mediums.
