Botanical gardens are simply stunning, aren’t they? They’re like a representation of the natural beauty that we all crave in this world. When you’re there, surrounded by greenery and flowers, it’s easy to feel at peace with the world. It’s an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in nature and appreciate the beautiful creation we’ve been given.
But, have you ever stopped to think about the amount of work and preservation that goes into saving our plants and trees? It’s truly astounding. Think about the hard work of the pollinators – they tirelessly ensure that the plants get the vital nutrients they need to thrive. And let’s not forget the faithful volunteers and workers who dedicate their time to keep the gardens in tip-top shape.
The beauty of botanical gardens is that they offer the most natural setting for you to explore different ecosystems. It’s like a mini adventure every time you visit, with something new to discover each time. It’s no wonder that so many people (including myself) choose to get married at a botanical garden. It’s a place that symbolizes love and natural beauty all in one. That is where the inspiration comes from for my first collection “Botanic Study.” Every time I visit a new city, I always make it a point to visit the local botanical gardens.
For my two colorways, I wanted to reflect the vibrancy of all the plants and flowers at the gardens, as well as the studious vintage quality of the preservation work. I wanted to have a versatile body of work, a collection that would work on both textiles, wallpapers and that can be converted into stationary.
