Each design begins with collecting blooms, weed and leaves. My favorite place to collect is on walks, hikes, and buying direct from local flower farmers. Once collected they immediately go into one of my many flower presses. Luckily, my husband Joe makes stacks of flower presses for me to fill. Over the course of 3-6 weeks, I change the paper and smooth out any folded petals or leaves several times to ensure they press as beautifully as possible. Taking a fully-pressed flower out of the press is pure happiness for me.
My hope is that my work brings beauty, connection and meaning to you in a way that fills your soul, as it does mine. Thank you for connecting to me and my work, this means more to me than you will ever know!
