In addition to full-time letterpress printing, I am also student of horticulture - both inside and outside of the classroom.  I am currently pursuing a Certificate of Horticulture at the Barnes Arboretum in Lower Merion, PA, and informally in and around my home and studio.  At home I'm particularly interested in native gardening, wildlife and pollinator plants. 

Soon after entering the Certificate of Horticulture program at the Barnes Arboretum, I was given the great opportunity to collect specimens from their excellent Fern Collection for a print project.  From there this small collection grew into my fascination with the intersection of botanical collecting and printmaking.

My new project focuses on a broader spectrum of plants, some of which were more challenging to capture in letterpress.  A rotating selection of items related to this project is available in the Shop.  Hope you enjoy!
