Susan DiMarchi: Botanical artist, Illustrator, Glass artist etc...

Susan DiMarchi graduated from the Denver Botanic Gardens' Botanical Art and Illustration Program in 2010. She is a visual artist with a diverse background in painting, commercial art, glass design, botanical illustration and plant landscapes. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the U.S., Canada and Japan, and featured in many publications. Susan’s glass is in the permanent collection of Contemporary Glass at the Corning Museum in New York.
Susan DiMarchi was the featured cover illustrator for Penstemons to Pines: Illustrating Rocky Mountain Natives - extended exhibit catalog.  Susan's illustrations are also found in Botanical Interests, Inc. seed packages and she co-authors Botanical Interests blog "Creative Inspirations" (mainly the "Inspired" part).
We are excited to welcome Susan DiMarchi back to the program, as she will be the most recent addition to our core instructors. Susan D. will be mainly teaching Colored Pencil and Pen and Ink.

I also want to thank Annie Reiser who cannot continue teaching regularly in our program because of her new work related commitments. Annie, we are going to miss your talent and creativity but know that you will  return in the future to teach special weekend workshops.
