We are so thrilled to introduce another post from one of our Advisory Board members. We'll be running regular columns about inspiration and gardening tips from our advisory board throughout the year. (If you missed it, some of our past columns have include how to plant dahlias, by Frances Palmer, and creating a container cutting garden, by Saipua, aka Sarah Ryhanen.)
Artist Karen Robertson creates beautiful works of art using materials from nature, often drawing her inspiration from the sea, incorporating starfish, sea fans, and seashells in her pieces. (Be sure to check out her Garden Design Advisory Board member page and gallery to learn more about her work and to read our Q&A with Robertson.)
We are so happy that she offered to share with us her techniques for pressing seaweed to create your own lovely artwork—a wonderful way to keep memories of a summer visit to the ocean in your house all year long.—Claire Lui
