About

In medieval Latin a florilegium (plural florilegia) was a compilation of excerpts from other writings. The word is from the Latin flos (flower) and legere (to gather): literally a gathering of flowers, or collection of fine extracts from the body of a larger work. It was adapted from the Greek anthologia (ἀνθολογία) “anthology”, with the same etymological meaning.

My artistic practice helps me to look outside of my own life and to see the world. It helps me to relate to it with curiosity and to understand that I am part of it and not separate from it. Ecology and stewardship are important to me, and since my research as an artist, I have come to see that we do not exist in isolation, but as part of a whole. Without plants we wouldn’t survive.
