New labels fresh off the presses for the apothecary line. I'm still hoping the Clover Market tomorrow won't be a complete wash out...

Working on some new botanical beauties, including this fritillary. It's a new plant for me and I love it!

About

Sharing my love of Botany one specimen at a time.

In college I worked in the herbarium of the Carnegie Museum where I learned first hand how to preserve and mount botanic specimens for long term archival collections. It was probably the most fun I ever had at a job - I got to do all the technical science things that I love, but I was also tasked with making the specimens aesthetically appealing.

Once I moved to Philadelphia I became obsessed with learning to identify all the flora growing in the city around me. I found that creating my own herbarium was a wonderful tool to help me remember all the specimens I found on my urban hikes and gave me a reference tool when I found something I couldn't easily ID. But that herbarium grew and grew and started to take over my poor apartment. So I started framing the prettier specimens to hang around my home and give as gifts to friends. They were so popular I decided to offer them for sale online.

I have a degree in Environmental Science as well as numerous years working in Museums and Botanic Gardens around Pennsylvania so you can be sure each specimen that I wild collect is not damaging the ecosystem in any way.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

My real botanical specimens are mounted on herbarium paper sized 11.5 x 16.5 inches

Why do your botanicals look yellow/brown/weird on my screen?

I hand stain all of my papers with walnut ink to give a vintage look and feel to my specimens. The staining is not heavy handed and the background does not detract from the specimen on the page.

This does make the background unique on each piece, but they still work visually together in a collection.
