I filter all of the things that are going through my head--nature, politics, love, war, sprituality, peace--and they all come out through my brush in a story. And it's even better if the story you see is different than the one in my head; we are creating together. I work in a variety of mixed media--from ink to milk. As an illustrator I primarily used acrylic gouache, but most of my current artwork evolves out of my own interpretation of the traditional Japanese art form sumi-e ("ink painting").
Each time I paint, I stone-grind a deep rich black sumi ink, which I brush along with gansai water colors on handmade washi paper. I often mount finished pieces on canvas frames or paper sculptures, but I have begun to integrate sumi-e into my illustrations as well. I also love to play around with various types of paper. I tear it, collage it, sculpt it, but most interesting to me is the way that sumi and gansai react to different papers and media. Sometimes it slowly spreads out to form a uniform circle, at others it's path is chaotic and unknown, resulting in what I like to call "happy accidents." When I use acrylic gouache or milk with sumi and gansai, it works as a resist, creating unusual patterns on various papers. I sometimes use kakishibu (fermented persimmon juice) for a dye, which adds a whole new property to the paper.
I also print on various papers, using both mulberry and watercolor paper for my hand-pulled prints; for more information on this process, please read about prints and cards in the store section. Presently my work can be found locally at the Harn Museum of Art on the University of Florida campus, the Artisan's Guild in Downtown Gainesville, and in my studio in East Gainesville. In Fall 2008, I began to travel to art festivals both in Florida and throughout the eastern United States. Clicking on the header above will take you to a schedule of my shows and festivals. If you join my mailing list, I will let you know if I am coming to a festival near you. When I am not painting or doing shows, I am co-authoring numerous children's books with my husband, who teaches at Santa Fe College. I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Sweetwater Print Co-Op, the Gainesville Artisan's Guild Gallery, and co-founder of Nanasui (Seven Waters), a Japanese publishing group focusing on issues for women living abroad.

Here are some tips on measuring liquid medicines for children. they are not graduated to measure fractions of a teaspoon properly teaspoons from the kitchen vary widely in volume from 4 ml to 10 ml (a standard teaspoon is 5 ml) if you avoid the kitchen drawer, you will also steer clear of a common error: mistaking a tablespoon for a teaspoon (giving three times the proper dose) The best way to measure medicine is with a graduated spoon or syringe. These are available at any pharmacy, or if you remember to ask at your doctor's office you may get one there. These are marked with graduations for both milliliters (ml) and fractions of a teaspoon and typically hold 5 ml - one teaspoon. Remember that milliliters (ml) and cubic centimeters (cc) are the same thing. Some conversion factors for teaspoons and milliliters: 1/4 teaspoon 1.25 ml 1/2 teaspoon 2.5 ml 3/4 teaspoon 3.75 ml 1 teaspoon 5 ml 1-1/2 teaspoon 7.5 ml 1 tablespoon 15 ml. Some liquid medications are measured in fractions of a milliliter. For measuring such small amounts of medicine, your doctor may give you a 1 cc syringe (there is that cubic centimeter thing again - remember, it is the same as a milliliter - ml). If so, make sure the doctor or pharmacist shows you exactly which mark to use on the syringe. A felt pen mark or a piece of tape are the least prone to error. If you do not have a syringe, you can still measure small amounts of medicine using a Tylenol® or similar acetaminophen dropper. Recall that the dropper is generally marked 0.4 and 0.8 ml. 0.2 ml 1/2 of the 0.4 mark 0.4 ml the first mark on the dropper 0.6 ml halfway between the 0.4 and 0.8 marks 0.8 ml the second mark on the dropper 1.0 ml the second mark on the dropper plus half of the first mark 1.2 ml 0.8 ml plus 0.4 ml - you get the picture. Of course, some droppers are marked 0.3 and 0.6 ml. These droppers can be used just as well to approximate a dosage fairly accurately. In case you are worried about the slight amount of error introduced by eyeballing a measurement between two lines, remember that some medicine sticks to the dropper, some is spit out by the child, etc. More precision is ordinarily not needed; if it is, your doctor will be sure to give you a syringe to measure very precisely. IMPORTANT UPDATE: Is CBD an Anti-Viral Agent with Coronavirus? Every brand seems to have their own ways to measure CBD oil.
Let's look at the magic formula you can apply to everyone and more importantly, we'll allow you to be lazy and use our new CBD Dropper Calculator tool. How to calculate the milligrams (mg) of CBD in a dropper of CBD oil. First, we need to know this basic information: Volume of liquid in your bottle Amount of total CBD in the full bottle Amount of liquid in a dropper. We'll assume the 30 ml or 1 ounce since it's the standard and we can apply the same rule. This gets a little confusing and we can blame the brands for this. They can have very different ways of saying the same thing or worse yet.
See all the different ways they dance around the real question. This is easy with IndigoNaturals: 1000 mg of CBD 2000 mg of CBD 6000 mg of CBD.
