Join Meadowbrook's April 2021 Artist in Residence Colleen McCubbin Stepanic in her exploration of Meadowbrook Farm's gardens as inspiration for her multi-media drawings and paintings using techniques including silk painting and digital drawing. Learn about how COVID isolation caused McCubbin Stepanic to re-explore traditional crafts and to pursue gardening, both of which have been incorporated into her studio practice.
This talk is part of a monthly series featuring PHS Meadowbrook Farm Artists in Residence.
