Constance Reeder at daughter’s wedding

I’m so glad you are here!

I am Constance, a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ. A wife to my best friend & husband of almost 32 years. A homeschool Mom of four amazing people, two of whom are married to the most amazing in-laws. I'm Granma to my first precious grandbaby with a second due on 02/02/2020! I live with my husband and my two youngest kids in the lovely Pacific Northwest.

I love, love, love the ocean, particularly Cannon Beach, Oregon where I would love to retire one day and make art. My favorite times are spent with my family, vacationing on the Stormy Pacific Ocean, reading the Bible, drinking hot Chamomile tea with lots of honey, crocheting a blanket, painting a flower, watching the Waltons or a Jane Austin movie.

My favorite color is blue or yellow or white. I love my Cottage Garden and my favorite flower is the Hydrangea.

Since my kids are all grown up, I decided to try my hand at botanical illustration and in early 2018 I graduated from the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, Scotland online Certificate Course with Distinction. If it is possible, I would love to one day complete the RBGE 3-year Diploma Course.

My favorite mediums are graphite, black India ink & watercolor, and I love to work on Handmade Paper wrapped with Beautiful, Organic Nassi Silk Twine.

I love creating illustrations for hanging and cards for sending and I’m so glad you have stopped by my little As The Paint Flows Paper Shop. You can read about my art journey HERE & HERE.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
