For me, creating art is a healing process. It soothes, brings the fires of the imagination to the surface. To be in nature, feeling the connection of life-it is a spiritual process.

handcrafted

It begins with seeds, nurturing the plants, foraging, pressing, and storing. Each creation is a multi-step process, all done by hand, which take between several hours to many weeks.

seasonal

My one-of-a-kind artwork is created with pieces of plant material that I grow collect, and press. Following the seasons, the cycle of planting, harvesting, gathering, ideating, and creating makes up my work and life.

sustainable

I work within the Seasons. I flow with them. The Laws of Nature guide me through.My works are one-of-a-kind created with love and respect for the natural world in which we live.

storytelling

Guided by an inner muse, guided by the seasons. My work, like my gardens, grow wild, rich in color and texture. Each one tells its own story as the spirits of the plants emerge.
