Artist Statement
Exploring gardening as a design process, artistic platform, community practice, and educational experience. Decoding the landscape, forming space for stillness, capturing light, creating an atmosphere for growth, and finding its wildness.

Building a forward thinking and interdisciplinary gardening community, creating tools to help people effortlessly play with plants, making accessible the skills needed to confidently work in the garden,
re-shaping an economic mindset around investing more in plants, and empowering people through garden based education.

Listening to nature, making art from the space, the ebb and flow of the seasons, designing future moments in time, choreographing the interactions of plants, bluring the boundrary of inside and outside, collaboration between plants and human design.
