I Heart Wilder (Bigtime)

Happy Spring, doves! If you know me then you know that I love Wilder Quarterly and all things it represents. I have a wonderful little collection of their quarterly journals stacked by my bed. I was and still am so humbled about this write up on their site! Read more here.

Thank you so much Celestine + Wilder Quarterly.

stella + cardoons + light
Hello friends + happy week-end to you. I have so much to post (I'll start next week) on everything that has been going on (music video, installation, foraging, interviews!) but for now I will simply give this image. I feel like it was a captured moment of magic. That's how I feel right now: like my life has an extra large dose of magic circling. Magic that I am so grateful for (magic that also comes from a lot of hard work, sweat and time). I am exhausted, I need to recharge, but mostly, I am happy. How are you?

I am sooo excited to share this with you today and to invite you to come out next Thursday, March 21st for our opening ceremony to help us celebrate the TIGERS TO LILIES installation + collaboration: PLANTS: OUR SILENT GUARDIANS

I have been asked to be the artist-in-residence for one month at The Standard Hollywood and I sincerely couldn't be more honored or psyched! As is my nature I knew that I wanted to collaborate with my friends: the amazing artists Lauren Spencer King + Claire Cottrell! Together the three of us have come up with what I can confidently say will be a staggeringly beautiful installation with of course a lot of wild and a lot of depth. You. Have. To. Come!

Furthermore, just to sprinkle all this goodness with even more fun, Claire's BOOKSTAND will have a physical space in the hotel lobby as a pop-up for the duration of the installation 3/21 - 4/21! If you know anything about Claire you know that this will be a most special space with such treasures to read, workshops to attend and lectures to be heard all while sipping on herb-infused refreshments + snacks. So seriously, how exciting is Spring looking? I'll do my best to give you as much info about all of this as it unfolds, OK? 

Thank you Jenni B. + The Standard!

You Are A Circle

"This may sound like a cliché, but remember: If there are no opportunities around you, create them.
Ask yourself:
How can I help them?
How can I surprise them?
How can I create smiles on their faces?"

-excerpt from Guillaume Wolf's
that I am enjoying so much.

This is what the floral artistry looks like after. What an awesome opportunity. Thank you so much Australia Vogue + Stevie + Sasha! I am beyond stoked to get to see & share this.

Australia Vogue before...

Sometimes I get commissioned to do really magical work but I can't always share it with you right away. I am really honored to get to share with you today these pieces that I made for Vogue Australia last November. These are the befores...

Pale Subtropical Light

I have been watching photographer Matthew Porter's work for about a year now and was pleasantly surprised when I fell upon his Pale Subtropical Light work. I was immediately drawn to the title and  I really appreciate his photographs that make up this body of work. Also to note: check out his flying sports car series--they're the perfect blend of tough/magical.

Audrey Grace

Found these outtakes from the Audrey Grace shoot that I so happily got to work on for my friend Claire! Those are living butterflies that had just hatched from their cocoons and these brand new babies spread their wings and took to our model Anne Marie immediately. Pretty unreal.
