I create my botanical medicinal plant embroideries, local medicinal plant illustrations, and pressed flower pieces. The majority of my work are 5x5 hand embroidered plant "patches" to frame and hang as art, or sew on a bag or clothing. I also sell pressed flowers and prints of my plant illustrations.

For years I struggled with physical health issues and depression. These embroideries were my first step on the path towards healing, towards taking my health into my own hands. I draw from motifs that originate from healing modalities, queer history, and plant life. The pieces serve as a talisman, a reminder of a sense of peace.
