If you are a Floridian, you have likely seen the art of Honey Hilliard. Her paintings are featured on Florida’s bird identification
poster. She created the paintings 20 years ago, and the posters have been in circulation ever since, at state parks, wildlife refuges, schools and libraries all over Florida. Since the creation of those extremely detailed bird paintings, Hilliard’s art has become progressively bigger, brighter and bolder. A talented, prolific artist and entrepreneur, Honey creates soulful, vibrant paintings, thick with texture, rich with color and alive with energy. After receiving an art degree from Florida State University, she was employed by the State of Florida as a bird and wildlife artist. For the last 16 years, Honey has honed her abilities as a successful freelance artist. Honey’s interactive children’s book, Looking for Butterflies©, was published in 2012, and takes place at St Marks Refuge, is available at bookstores and www.LookingforButterflies.com. Honey spent the summer of 2013 studying and working as an assistant at an Artist Retreat Center, a trip that resulted in a body of oil and pastel paintings, “The French Collection”, another of several ongoing series such as “The Bejeweled Forest”, a collection of jeweled, crowned creatures with gold leaf and decorative fibonacci swirls. Honey’s art has been featured in many publications, calendars and books. Her work has been commissioned and collected by clients across the US and internationally.

Tucked away on three acres in the heart of Tallahassee is a fascinating property hidden from view. A visitor walks down a wooded path and is greeted by a majestic live oak tree shading a soft lawn. This tree, a sapling in the time of Shakespeare, keeps company with something not seen in Florida, an English Tudor-style cottage, which looks as if it comes from the pages of a child’s book of fairy tales. With a steeply gabled roof, diamond-pattern leaded glass windows and stone foundation, the cottage continues its vigil over the gardens, labyrinth and tree surrounding it. A majority of the classes will be held inside the cottage, which is handicap accessible with a ramp in the back of the cottage leading up to the back door. If there is an overflow of parking, signs will direct you to the appropriate lot. There is a restroom in the cottage and portable restrooms outside.
