My mandala collection grew out of my love of photographing gardens and patterns in nature. As a Master Gardener I have contributed numerous images to UC Marin Master Gardeners website and publications. I have also contributed images to the GGNRA and local garden organizations highlighting garden design and illustrating best gardening practices.

A few years ago I started collecting and pressing flowers and plants. To further preserve and enlarge these specimens, I used my scanner as a camera to produce magnified images. I collaborate with Cindy LaMar to create high resolution prints of our pressed botanicals. To see our work visit agardenersherbarium.com
