"Working in forestry and garden cultivation is a family tradition. I always saw myself doing something artistic as an occupation, but I did not know that my interest in horticulture as a child would bring me to a place where I could be a part of implementing large scale growing sculptures.
I appreciate the practical aspects of a garden to provide shade, sunbathing, cooking options, pools, spas, and play areas. But the aesthetic and spiritual aspect of gardens is constantly intriguing to me. I see where just being in close proximity to a well cultivated garden relieves anxiety and gives people a contented outlook."
