Welcome! My website is GardenDelightsArts. I’m Heidi, a photographer lucky enough to be married to a wonderful, gifted naturalist, George, who has the most amazing green thumb and a vast knowledge about animals and plants. He surrounds me with a menagerie of animals, including turtles, hummingbirds, butterflies, hens, bees, squirrels, and much more … and a wonderland of orchids, roses, native plants, trees … all begging to be photographed.
I’m a self-taught photographer and artist, dedicated to creating original and unique artwork with innovative techniques. I use my nature photos and the designs I create from them in my handmade mixed media arts and crafts pieces. I print directly on fabric and unusual surfaces such as Lutradur, Evolon, metal, and wood, and in using transfer techniques to get images onto any surface that won’t fit through a printer. Interested in going beyond creating art that hangs on the wall in a frame, I design fabric for textiles and home decor, and love to think of new ways, both utilitarian and fun, to use my images.
I have a zazzle gallery where you can see how my images and designs look on a variety of fun and useful products. I also show some of my handmade work in my Artfire and Etsy shops.
I’ve written three books, which you can get in Kindle format or printed version, or order right here as PDF downloads. Just click “add to cart” for whichever book(s) you’d like to purchase.
George, along with his talent for making plants and animals thrive, is a fantastic actor. This is his acting website. And this is our blog about adventures in beekeeping and urban farming, La Ferme Melliferalle.
