Whenever I am not making artwork in the studio, I can usually be found in some garden obsessively taking pictures of everything that inspires me. Considering all of the gardens I've visited over the years and all the photos taken along the way led me to come up with my recent side project Grading Gardens, a garden review blog. Every week (or so) I feature an exceptional garden with a gallery of photos, a written review, and a friendly rating system.
After starting the blog just over a year ago, I have featured reviews of gardens around my hometown of the DC/MD/VA area as well as gardens in California, Florida, and even Paris, France! This blog helps me do something productive with my passion for nature photography and obsession with seeking out inspiring places that heavily influence my artwork.
