I was born and raised on a dairy farm in the center of Wisconsin. From the time I was little, I have had the privilege of working in gardens. I am connected to the earth when I share the conversation of growth with plants. My room of wonder is open; I can see the unanswered questions: how that plant migrated to a better location, how the other became something different after its 5-year mark. This sense of wonder, and witnessing of energy, is at the core of my work and the garden continues to inform my wondering. In Wisconsin my garden has a resident pine snake. It is the keeper of the garden, minding all small rodents and surprising me. The garden is new and different every year. The energy of the garden is ever dynamic.
