Growing up in the S.F. Bay Area and frequently visiting the mountains to be with family has given me a great sense of appreciation for nature and a immense respect for its elements. after completing my education in horticulture and design I operated a successful landscape design build business in the Bay Area. The pull to be in the mountains has remained with me, and after much consideration I chose to follow my heart and move to the place I loved so much as a child. Being surrounded by nature inspires my imagination and fuels my passion to created clears my mind. Being in the shop is my form of active mediation and and create expression. In short its how I get back to center and share my imagination with the people around me.
