About The Artist


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 over 31 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. I live with my husband and my two youngest kids in the lovely Pacific Northwest.

I love, love, love the ocean, particularly Cannon Beach. My favorite times are spent with my family, vacationing on the 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.

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

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.
