Hi my name is Stephanie, Creator of Artful Green. I hand-form unique botanical pieces for you; using sustainable, natural and preloved materials.
From as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed experimenting with different mediums and having specialised in Fine Art Sculpture in DIT, my passion was further informed and ignited.
An ingrained need to create and a love of nature was nurtured in me from a very early age by both my parents; making mud pies, petal perfume and picking up the weeds for Dad, as he dug up the notorious, ever returning Bindweed.
You could say it all started back then in the 80's, in a veg patch in Crumlin.
Dad would often say I should study Horticulture........ With many years of working with nature and a recent RHS Qualification in Horticulture, I can confidently advise you on how to keep your Artful Green alive and looking fabulous.
Plants are a fascinating and dynamic medium to work with..... they've a natural calming vibe; an impermanence, so I am never in complete control of them. I enjoy challenging plants and seeing how they grow in different environments. I’ve embraced this green therapeutic medium with all its drama and unpredictability; now I can place an Artful Green in your hands and you can feel the simple pleasure too; a connection to nature evoking tranquility and stress relief.
Having worked with Young People in Dublin City for nearly 15 years, using Art and Horticulture as a medium; A Silver Lining offered me the chance to ditch the daily commute to Dublin and work around my Family life. A new journey of working from home to create my own work again and to share that feeling an Artful Green brings, with you.
Artful Green was born...... And I’m back making mud pies again.....
