“I am immersed daily in the area of my greatest inspiration. It is a place where nature provides a lifetime of exploration and study. I had the good fortune of vacationing here every summer as a child. I grew up wandering in the marshes, exploring the greenness and the vast skies. It was a puzzle to traverse the waterways, an escape,” says Gerding. “Now, it’s home.”

Gerding is a great fit no matter where we place her in the summer schedule. She is incredibly humble and kind and is well-loved by clients and fellow artists. These are traits second only to her abundance of talent.
