I spent the summer of 2015 hiking into the alpine tundra with botanist Vinnie Rossignol. With Vinnie's expert guidance we located these hardy wildflowers that grow above timberline. Once located, these wildflowers were documented with photographs, sketches, and an herbarium created by Vinnie.Throughout the following year I painted, using watercolors, 24 of the many alpine wildflowers found in Southwestern Colorado. This collection showcases the robust but diminutive flora found on high peaks and along ridge lines throughout the Rocky Mountains.


To accompany each print, botanist Katherine Darrow, author of Wild About Wildflowers, has provided botanical information for each flower.


Relish in the beauty of the alpine presented through this exceptional botanical collection.
