Welcome to The Illustrated Garden.
I’m Val Webb, an artist/illustrator in Alabama. Here on the red bluffs above Mobile Bay, I grow herbs and vegetables in the land of kudzu and fire ants. Come on in. The coffee’s hot.
My artwork celebrates a thousand small joys: botanical images from the garden and beyond; the insects and birds who share our urban wilderness; lazy koi sliding along beneath the lotus flowers in our backyard pond; the glimpse of a soaring pelican at the beach; a friendly cat on the front porch; a good cup of coffee.
Because my work is very solitary, I like to connect with people by teaching classes and workshops. I teach online classes in drawing and botanical art. I travel to other cities to give workshops in those subjects, plus other topics and techniques. Email me for details.
