As an artist and a gardener I often find myself in a flux. Do I spend time in my studio or in my garden? I find that the weather here in the Pacific Northwest often helps me decide which means of creativity I will channel on any given day.
As an artist I love texture, motion and color in my work. I like starkness and bold statements. These are also all the things I love about gardening. I stopped feeling guilty about all the time I spend in my garden the day I realized that I was painting pictures with plants. Leaf, bloom, colors...they are all a tapestry of beauty that, in my mind, blur the lines about which one is the real art.
I am Gardening Gaga! I am CRAZY for cool plants! I hope you enjoy my work.
