Caren will be joining this tour led by a master gardener of Italy's most glorious gardens! Arranged by our expert friends at Special Travel International, it is a fantastic itinerary and terrific value as always. Come along and wander the gardens, maybe learn to paint, or create a truly unique journal of your travel adventures!

Caren has just relocated back to the West Coast! Aside from getting settled, she is busily out and about reaquainting herself with the local art community. Please contact us if you're interested in attending one of the garden events or workshops she has currently scheduled, or if your group would like to plan a workshop!
Next workshop is at Coast Collective, Victoria, BC Nov. 26 - 27, 2012
The Canadian Mint has awarded Caren a third commission for a coin design. The Mountain Avens are the last in the series of provincial & territorial flowers issued as the world's purest gold coins (99.999%), and are much sought-after by collectors. It's gone full circle, as Caren's design for the BC Dogwood coin was the first in the series!
