About the Author

With this book "Pots, Plants and Design" Bonnie G. Smith shares with others the delight in the accomplishment of creativity. She became severely disabled with rheumatoid arthritis and at that time her husband decided to leave and find greener pastures. With her disability she was no longer able to work in her garden, go for long nature walks or ride her horses, so leaving behind the homestead and horses, with her youngest son, she relocated to a warmer climate in Columbia, South Carolina. Needing to keep busy and useful and in spite of her physical limitations she turned to her long time desire to draw and paint, where in, she enrolled in the in home Art Instruction School. She received her Certificate in the Fundamentals of Art and having done so well she decided to return to college, even though having to use a three wheel scooter for mobility. This author graduated in 1997 with a BA in Psychology, a minor in Cultural Anthropology and in Art Studio. After graduation she began creating works of art in her own studio. She has received grants from The Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties and from the Puffin Foundation for paintings of her favorite topic nature and people. Here in Columbia, at the Agricultural Conference Center, she has a watercolor painting on permanent display along with other chosen watercolorists of the area. She joyfully continues to work on many art projects and paintings in her studio

Format: Paperback
This book is fun to read and quite informative. I love the correlating poems. The patterns provided for a project are nice though I like the simple drawing lessons that enable me to draw my own designs. The chapter on probagating plants to pot include names of house plants that will actually clean the air in my home. I find this book to be a great bargain.

Format: Paperback
What an excellent little book! Just the ticket for the gardener or the craft worker. Ms. Smith combines the sensibility of artist with the practicality of the farm girl. This book is not only a boon to the hobbyist, but would prove an useful text for School Art Classes.

I was underwehlmed by this book. At this price I was expecting something more than a couple of ideas how to paint insects on clay pots and how to propagate a plant from a cutting. Next stop is to donate it to Goodwill where it will hopefully be better priced.
