How Does My Garden Grow?

 

This botanical collection began in 1995 when I began to gather leaves and flowers from walks and my garden and pressing them into books. At the time I had no thought of using them in an art work, my only desire was to preserve the beauty that I had savored, to capture the dissolved day in a simple memento.

 

I chose many of those specimens for this collection as well as current pressings, and I juxtaposed them with Italian Collage, antique wallpaper ephemera, book bindings and fabrics to illustrate the textural layers of life. 

 

The garden is a holy landscape resembling our lives, we grow, we are pressed to change, we follow seasons and we bloom and age and work done in hand and heart is worship itself. My intention was to create botanicals that reflected the reverential nature of garden and of life itself.
