85: Exploring Landscapes Around the World with Art ToolKit Founder Maria Coryell-Martin

Mike reflects on the Wild Wonder 2022 Nature Journal Conference and some art he has been working on. Mike is then joined by Maria Coryell-Martin to talk about her journey and how her job as an expeditionary artist led her to create her own company, Art Toolkit, supplying tools for nature journalers and urban sketchers worldwide. They talk about her various destinations and how we can use some of those experiences right in our own areas.
