Hello! My name is

Kate Poole

and I live and work in North Idaho. We are in the process of restoring a turn of the century homestead, where we host retreats.

Gardening has been a big part of my life.  I grow both medicinal herbs for my skin care line, Essential Apothecary Alchemist, and food crops, for farm to table dinners for our guests.

As an artist beauty is my soul food. I love painting women’s portraits embellished with birds, flowers, vines and plants. I also enjoy painting landscapes. I have endless inspiration living in our rural location.

The Botanist's Garden | A Media Art Retreat June 15th-18th, 2023

The Botanist's Garden explores the powerful world of plants as an artist's medium. For 2 days you'll explore a variety of techniques to create multiple finished pieces, all with an emphasis on using floral details in your work.

"I have dreamed of the day where I could gather up old friends and new ones, to celebrate each other and nurture our creative spirits, for a very long time."

We will gather in the beautiful Palouse prairie on Hunter Moon Homestead to celebrate the abundance and beauty that surrounds us. We will collect botanical plant materials both native and cultivated, and use them in a variety of ways to explore and utilize our creative imagination.

We will play using eco plant dyes, botanical stencil applications, floral cyanotype, playful botanical illustrations, floral stamp making, and stitching to embellish our creations, and so much more play and creativity.

There is nothing more healing than taking time in nature to quiet your spirit and celebrate your beautiful creative soul.
