Jeanetta Darley shares her passion for art and nature

By Todd E Jones | December 5, 2018

The past few years I have run into Jeanetta in setting such as Arts Fest, Eco Fest, pop up art shops and more. I have had the chance to see her vibrant, colorful artwork of nature including fruits and veggies.  …
