Horticultural therapy illustrations

I created this series of 12 garden activity illustrations under the direction of Horticultural Therapist and Educator Shelagh Smith. She realized that some people need encouragement to interact with nature in the garden. Garden signs featuring these illustrations may be found at her website.

These garden activity illustrations are available for licensing as vector or pixel-based images in custom colours and sizes. Please contact me for more information.
