ottens_inplaceTrish’s creation of living art pieces is inspired by the engaging beauty of living walls and green roofs. The smaller format that she utilizes for her work further captivates the eye as it delivers the unexpected visual of a framed, living, landscape.

Her work in concepting these pieces was fostered by a lifetime passion for gardening and augmented by many years of experiment with floral design. She draws on a professional background in environmentally responsible product design and development to create her truly ‘green’ living art pieces.

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.
Henry David Thoreau
