Keeyla Meadows is a painter, sculptor, and garden designer who makes gardens that are full-scale works of art you can walk into and be a part of. Her own garden is a living painting of vibrant colors. Keeyla is known as a pioneer in making artistic gardens more adaptable to small-scale gardens where color means filling the garden "frame" with attention to detail. Much of the color is provided by flowers. The garden is an invitation to local pollinators: "hummers," bees, and butterflies. Many materials are incorporated into the garden work: painterly pavings, wavy walls, mosaic benches, bronze sculptures, and brilliantly colorful plantings. You will find images of Keeyla’s garden in her book, Fearless Color Gardens. Some of Keeyla's handmade pots and garden sculptures will be offered for sale.
