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 create. Being in the shop is my form of active mediation and creative expression. In short its how I get back to center and share my imagination with the people around me.
