I work with real pressed flowers and leaves using them to make framed botanical art, jewelry, cards and now home décor items with another medium, resin. I press all of my own flowers and leaves using traditional pressing techniques and have even branched out into teaching a number of classes in the DFW area.
My craft started as a spin on a traditional herbarium preserved plant specimen, in a floating glass frame. As my collection of pressed flowers grew so must the business and we expanded into frameable paper pieces and jewelry.
We are heading into our 4th years now and growing with this little creative business has been such a rewarding experience. This year, I am really excited to begin my adventures using pressed flowers and leaves with resin and creating beautiful and unique home décor items such as trays, spoons, cups and bowls. Resin has been a challenge to master but it is such a rewarding experience... once everything is cured, buffed and shined.
I hope to inspire others to stop and smell the roses more... truly. It is easy to get lost in all the man made creations around us it is so important to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around us.
