Nature and animals have always held a special place in my heart and continue to be my most profound source of inspiration; hence, the name Flora Fauna. I do graphic design work as well as produce handmade creations. My "wall critters" are made from 95% up-cycled materials, mostly plastic packaging that can't be recycled and leftover fabric scraps from my sewing projects. My home studio is filled will bags and bags of items I've collected. My two young sons and I dig through them until we find the perfect materials to construct our critters. We literally turn trash into little treasures!
