Art, Business, and Sci Fi : All about The Mint Gardener
Show Notes

Join me as I chat with my dear friend, Sarah Simon, known for her widely popular watercolor art and technique under the name, The Mint Gardener.    Sarah is both locally and internationally lauded for her online and in person watercolor classes  as seen in The Watercolor Summit, Skill share, The Crafters box and local studio classes like Social Creative Workshops and StudioLife, to name a few.  Her methodical and meditative teaching style mimics the soothing brush strokes for each watercolor masterpiece.  The Mint Gardener's art techniques are also shared through her successful  books,  Modern Watercolor Botanicals and her fun coloring book, The Plant Lady, featuring her muse Florence (of Florence and her Fascinations).  Sarah's newest book,  Watercolor Workbook, is a 30 min Botanical watercolor tutorial for beginners, expected out in April 2021.     In our lively conversation, Sarah shares some lesser known lessons she learned about herself, her art, and and faith from her life's journey.   We cover the gambit of her inspirations-from The Dark Crystal to Madeline L'Engel.  You won't find these stories on her bio page or any other podcast.   Dive in with us, and get to know the "Gardener" behind "the Mint".    

Follow up with more, by going to @socialcreativeworkshops on Instagram IGTV to view our live "We:the makers: Series" chat answering more of your questions.   We know your time is valuable.  If you are an artist, or part of her/our community, it's worth it.
