HI MY NAME IS CAROL COX, i AM THE AUTHOR AND ARTIST BEHIND THIS SITE. wELCOME TO MY CREATIVE JOURNEY.
Growing up in a small country town has afforded me the privilege of spending time outdoors and developing a love for nature. Hiking and exploring the trails around my home town, I began to notice and take inventory of the plants and birds I was enjoying. I soon realized that in doing so I was also taking inventory of myself. I was finding my footing on the rocky mountain paths amongst the indigenous plants and birds I had come to love so much.
It wasn’t long before I was inspired to start drawing and painting the natural ‘treasures’ I was discovering on my mountain explorations. Creating art not only feeds my creative joy, it also provides an opportunity to learn about the natural world I am discovering. Through my art I have come to realize how important conserving the biodiversity of our natural heritage is. If “a picture paints a thousand words” then I hope that in even a small way I too am playing my part in highlighting the value and importance of this natural world.
