I have loved to garden and be outside since I was a little girl. When I moved back to this area 16 years ago, I started growing bonsai, something I had always wanted to do.
My oldest bonsai, a Hino Crimson Azalea, is just beginning to bloom.
People often ask me where I get my color inspiration. As with many artists and designers, my number one inspiration comes from nature. I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place where plants grow so happily and easily. On the islands, we enjoy inspiring vistas, old growth forest, water views, and beautiful landscapes everywhere we turn.
