In Celebration of Berkeley Gardens

Joanna Katz

donated to the city of Berkeley by: Visit Berkeley

I have painted gardens and vistas in watercolor for many years.  I find something peaceful and meditative in observing and interpreting nature’s forms.  I do not chose to paint well known or necessarily pretty scenes.  Instead I paint views I discover for myself that tell me something special about my surroundings.  I enjoy painting everywhere—in my backyard and on my occasional travels.

Being part of the solution for the endangered earth I love, the earth that nourishes all plants, animals including humans is so important for all of us.  My box design is inspired by my garden where I grow both flowers and some vegetables I eat (another small effort towards healing the earth).  I am very pleased to be chosen to design a box for the 60 Boxes Project with its theme of sustainability.
