Pastels around the Peaks 2017!  I will be offering pastels classes for all comers and levels this summer.  Pastels are a wonderful medium for learing about painting..very inspiring and forgiving.  Approximately 1 class in the latter part of each month..probably the last Sunday, 1-6pm, starting in late May and continuing through September.  The class will be strongly plein air, with sessions in my studio only if the weather fails us.  Destinations will include a new venue: painting lilypads in a very Monet-like setting!  Further info coming during April. 

Greeting Cards & Post cards galore.  I offer more than 20 images on cards.  Image availability upon request. Please view Cards and Post Cards pages.  Cards-and paintings- are also available at Zanis Gifts on Phoenix St.

Various-sized prints of most images found on the site.  Matting and framing available.  Bookmarks with native plants are also available.



I produce a column called Nature Notes for the local paper, The Arizona Daily Sun about each month.  In it I describe some of the natural history of our area. 

A Natural History of the Intermountain West: Its Ecological and Evolutionary Story. Gwendolyn Waring, 2011, University of Utah Press, Salt Lake City.  My book on the evolution and ecology of our regional ecosystems was released in Spring 2011. 

Natural history lectures tailored for school children and for adults, in school and public lecture formats.  I teach natural history in most of Flagstaff's public and charter schools, and, previously, conducted a city-funded lecture series at the Museum of Northern Arizona. 


The Natural History of the San Francisco Peaks.  Update.  I am getting to send out final drafts of this book for review at the end of April, 2017.  While in review I will be lining out all graphics, tables and figures, and fundraising to cover the costs of design, graphics and printing.  The goal of this effort is to honor this mountain's existence as the most prominent sky island in the Southwest United States.  It is a remarkable story.  Please stay tuned.


With my knowledge of native plants and how they behave in the garden, I design perennial gardens and landscapes that are beautiful, water conserving, low-maintenance, and provide a great connection with the natural world around us.
