Visit for articles and ideas. Shari Zimmermann usually creates art by combining multiple layers of vibrant acrylic paint with scraps of paper images on her mixed media canvases. Eliminating the luxury of color and shading and communicating only with line texture, positive and negative space for this garden memoir was an exhilarating challenge she plans to explore further.
