About

Bring the garden inside!

The Blooming Artichoke Herbary came about because, well frankly, because I'm an unrepentant plant geek. I'm also a textile artist. What's a girl to do with that? What I did was to start a perennial nursery where I propagate and grow the garden plants I love and then used those plants as inspiration for my textile designs. The best of both worlds, an inside and an outside garden!

What you will find strolling through my Etsy shop are beautiful and practical botanical designs for your home. As a textile artist I use applique, embroidery, beading, paint, photography and other techniques together to reinterpret nature's lovely creations. Each piece is free-hand appliqued (no embroidery machines allowed) and so each piece will be unique. Since I'm a practical soul, the designs are worked onto things like pot holders, pillows, table runners, tea towels, etc. Items that can be useful as well as attractive in the home.

So, come see my indoor garden. If you are interested in the outside garden, our plants are available to ship at www.bloomingartichoke.com.

    I'm all about plants. There are the outdoor versions in my gardens and in my nursery, The Blooming Artichoke Herbary. But as a textile artist they are also the inspiration for my creations.

Welcome to The Blooming Artichoke!

All of the creations you find in the shop are handmade by me using free hand applique (no embroidery machines allowed) and then depending on the design and item, hand embroidered and/or beaded for embellishment. My goal is to bring the plants that I love into the home. I do that using applique work of my original designs, often drawn directly from plants in my own garden (the outside version).
