In early 2014, the Botanical Artists for Education & the Environment (BAEE) published American Botanical Paintings: Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic.

It is sold at Monticello; the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden Shop in Richmond, Virginia; Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Virginia; the New York Botanic Garden; the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; as well as at other gift and garden shops.
