Before me came at least three generations of horticulturists so that influence is easy to see in my planters, sculpture and vases. Off the beaten path, I look out from my studio on the Vermont landscape, maples lining a country road. My studio is bordered by woods and patterns of the overlapping branches are an inspiration in winter, the shades of green so gorgeous in summer and of course the leaves so spectacular in the autumn. We have a medium sized greenhouse and grow salad greens and vegetables in there and in the garden trying to outwit the weather and make up for the fact that the sun goes over the hill early no matter what time of year it is.

My husband Steve helps me with the business graciously making post office runs or last minute trips to Staples for ink, stoking the woodstove as well as creating sculptural wood and brush piles on the hill.

To see my work in use go to the article by Michaela on her blog Michaela, a landscape gardener has written a great article on container gardening on her blog, too.
