Marty's Story

Home to America’s first landscaped gardens, the nation’s only commercial tea garden and the country’s oldest romantic-style gardens - Charleston is a botanical playground that provides endless inspiration for artists like Marty.

Watch Marty's Story

When I garden or paint I feel slowed down. I’ve gotten out of the rush of life and the treadmill that I tend to get on. My mother and I both love a needle and thread, a paintbrush and paint, dirt and seeds, transforming a plain thing into something beautiful.
