Hello and Many Thanks for visiting my website. My name is T, and I am a watercolour artist living and working out of my little old cottage located in Petoskey, Michigan - a quaint little town located on Lake Michigan in the northern region of the lower peninsula. This is a most blessed and wonderful place to live and work because it is filled with so much natural beauty. I find myself constantly inspired by local flora, fauna and fungi, as well as by a very special local treasure known as the Petoskey stone, which is a kind of fossilized coral that lived here millions of years ago. I am especially grateful to be able to share these things that inspire me so deeply through the work that I do, and in this way connect with others.
Another passion of mine is Cottage Gardening. When not painting or tromping through the woodlands, I can most often be found digging, weeding, planting and seed collecting about the cottage. I also enjoy spending time with family & friends, printmaking, cottage projects, music and baking.
I do hope you enjoy viewing my artwork and I thank you kindly for stopping by. xx T
Roses and Hollyhocks - a Summertime treat at Snow Fairy Cottage.

In the Springtime at Snow Fairy Cottage, Violet blossoms pop up just about everywhere...their scent is heavenly.

Of course we cannot forget Old Man Winter - our longest and most trying season. All of the flowers are sleeping, but creativity is at its most abundant time inside our snug & cosy little cottage.
