My name is Carol VanderZee; I am a faux and mural artist, gardener and most recently, an avid faerie garden creator and designer. I am the mom of three lovely daughters and wife of a very patient husband. My mom, from whom I inherited my creative bent, was an accomplished oil painter specializing in flowers, most notably roses. My dad, from whom I inherited my love of gardening, always had lovely flower beds, and a large vegetable garden. Our youngest daughter, Jennifer, also inherited her grandmother’s artistic talent and creates the most amazing digital illustrations. She is my co-creator, “cheerleader” and in charge of this web page.
