Here at my home and studio gallery we grow heirloom tomatoes, practice restoration ecology, grow meadow blazing star for monarch butterflies and of course there is art a plenty. You will be encouraged to hold the art in your hands and taste samples from the plants the season has on offer if you take a tour.  You are invited to enjoy temporary sanctuary in my living art project. Small entourages are encouraged and dogs are always welcome if there human is well behaved.

Welcome to Katherine's Garden. Come tour along the Walker River boardwalk, immerse yourself in the prints and paintings, nourish from the garden's bounty, dance with the Monarchs in August, or sit quietly with a cup of tea as Karuna (the puppy) tries to get you to throw her toy.
