Preserving the language of nature... One flower at a time.
I have always been inspired by nature and its expressions in the landscape. With an academic background in horticulture and anthropology, I have spent many years studying the ways that humans use plants for food, fiber, medicine -- and in my case, for art, decoration, beauty and healing. I have been creating and selling mixed media botanical collages using handmade and painted papers with botanical specimens that I collect, press, preserve and enhance using a unique process since 2006. My work has expanded into a line of botanical collage jewelry and most recently ecoprinted wearable art. I have exhibited at countless regional art shows and maintain a wholesale inventory on Indieme (please inquire for details) for shops, museums and galleries throughout North America; my designs have also been featured in catalogs. I always strive to maximize color preservation and have no shame in embellishing where needed! Unlike many pressed flower artists, most of my processes are "wet" and if a delicate, water soluble botanical pigment fades a bit during the process, I will painstakingly add it back with a variety of paints, dyes and powders; thus much of my work is mixed media in its truest form. Always searching for pattern and repetition in nature, I am selective about the botanicals that I use in any of my mediums; careful attention to detail and composition give my work an element of distinction. A whimsical interpretation of nature is a golden thread running through each design. I hope that my works inspires people to observe nature more closely, and reflect upon their relationship with it.
