The Drawings and Paintings from my trip to Costa Rica are CURRENTLY on display at THE CROSSORE FINE ARTS GALLERY in CROSSNORE, NC untill July 12, 2010
In January of 2010, I went to the south pacific coast of Costa Rica for 3 monthes to work on an organic tropical farm called Finca Carolina. The 55 arce farm is the homebase for UTSI, The Uvita Tropical Studies Institute; a non profit dedicated to tropical conservation and education.

I took a workshop with Dona Isabella, a medicine woman from the local indigenous tribe, the Boruca, We used leaves, roots and tree bark to hand dye cotton yarn that would later be used for weaving fabric.
