My garden is an extension of my home, it welcomes me and accepts me. It feeds my soul with tranquility, peace and gives my eyes the gift of color and beauty beyond my imagination. It’s growth and rebirth give me the strength to to always try again and move forward. Working with botanicals from my garden has brought me much joy, and a deep appreciation for the fragility and perseverance of nature and its healing power. My intent is to produce work that brings focus to all stages of life, both tangible and ethereal.
