Why I Forage
It is incredibly important to me to take good care of our gorgeous earth. Having materials imported from far leaves a heavy carbon footprint. This is why I choose to indulge in the beauty that surrounds us. When I’m creating a project, I grab my buckets and shears and head to the woods.
So many elements + textures can be found that portray the wild, ornate tendencies of nature giving each arrangement a unique, distinctive quality that can’t be duplicated.
Why I Grow
Growing up with a grandmother who taught me how to keep a beautiful garden, I do just that. Peonies, dahlias, amaranthus, clematis, tulips, and lace flower are some of the floral elements that I grow in my cutting garden. All of these beauties give me a trove of greenery and blossoms to pull from when I’m creating.
