Being a long time lover of the great outdoors and all it's beauty, it seems only natural my muse became a fusion of art and nature, creating enchanting sculpture in a sustainable medium suitable for your indoor or outdoor space. I have found my passion in creating art from nature. I love outdoor spaces and treat them as another room in my home.
I started out with BIG leaves, the bigger the better. My biggest one to date is an elephant ear 4' by 5'.
I have many large leaves for sale in my local area.
I decided to share my art on Etsy in a smaller scale due to shipping. I have found no matter the size of the leaf they are all equally unique, eye catching and add such a nice touch to any space. They make great gifts too!
Each piece is one of a kind cast only once from a hand picked leaf or flower.
Once cast it is kept hydrated for a minimum of two weeks, this allows the concrete to stregthen and 'cure' not dry. Concrete will continue to harden over its entire lifetime but is considered fully cured in 28 days. After being tended to for one month I then use various stains, outdoor laytex color washes and acrylic paints to further create a true one of a kind treasure. I love the translucence of stains & color washes that allow the many uniquie characteristics of the concrete to show through to some degree. "Primitive Elegance" Finally each work of art is sealed with several coats of a durable high gloss concrete sealer and awaits it's new home.

Additional policies and FAQs
My art is made with love and reinforcment to ensure reasonable durability. However it is concrete and is breakable so it should be treated with care.
If the piece is outdoors and losses it's shine over time it should be sprayed with a suitable outdoor clear coat found where ever spay paint is sold. Several light coats with drying time in between is the proper method. This will also keep the colors from wearing due to the elements. I personally use a high quality liquid concrete sealer that is brushed on.
Although living in Florida, I have never had any issue with the leaves that adorn my yard year round. IT IS RECOMMENDED that your leaf/flower be brought in during the coldest winter months to prevent cracking.
