“When the weather permits, I love to forage for branches and plants outside to draw from life— though throughout the winter my 'foraging' often means a trip to the local wholesale florists coolers.”

“When I’m looking for plants to draw from, I like to think about the basic elements of design. These delicate plants can articulate power and dominance just within their form, or their hardy existence can exemplify grace and line.”
