Wanderlust

I am a renegade botanist, informed and inspired by my biophilic passions. 

Wanderlust” is a living sculpture; a travelling seedpod. It is my intention that it will be situated in a location that it can be left to go wild and rogue; creating a new diversity of specifically chosen wildflowers, medicinal herbs and plants embedded with folklore and symbolism.

This caravan used to be my home and I have transformed it into a place that can now be a home for other creatures.
