As an Master Dyer and a practicing Shamanic Practitioner, life has seen fit to blend the two areas, by introducing me to plants, plant spirits and the idea co-creation. I planted a dying garden last summer and wander the local forests often in search of new leaves that eco-print well. The land, and weather gets involved too. Over the last year of eco-printing, several great species of plant have brought themselves to my yard, via the wind, to plant themselves within easy each. Sumac, my true plant ally, as well as Virginia Creeper and wild Blackberry have all shown up this spring.
