I will be returning to college in the fall for my second undergrad degree (Landscape Design) and I currently have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture. For my BFA thesis project I brought the forest inside. I filled the gallery with natural mulch and brought in various potted ferns, tree trunks and branches. Abstract figures carved into freestanding tree trunks were center stage as bird songs played in the background. I have always loved both art and nature and plan to use my degrees together to express the desires of my clients in an artistic and sustainable manner.
