about the artist
Hello and welcome!
I’m Kara Lyn, your friendly neighborhood artist and plant stewardess and I’m here to share my planty creations with the community. I’ve been growing and working with these beautiful beings since I was a teen, as my mother filled our home with their calming and cleansing energies- and I was hooked!
With this deep draw of the natural world, I was moved to help others in their yards and gardens professionally by bike in Portland, OR for 17 years as The Garden Pixie. I added indoor plantscaping to my offerings in 2014 as the focus on designing, growing, and maintaining houseplants slowly took the stage. I’ve taken a series of horticulture classes and plant workshops over the years on how to care for and propagate plants, in addition to ‘just learning as I grow’ with my own collection.
Along with a love of plants I also draw, work with clay, paint, and weave macrame creations to hold plants. Now my passion for plants and art have merged into the creations you see on this page. Each plant is carefully chosen to reflect a certain vision I have, which the plant itself helps bring forward, and is paired with a vessel that supports the intended creation, while being decorated in various ways to round out the design.
My love for plants and art equally inform my process which makes each piece unique and a fully vibrant expression of both nature and art. It is my great joy to share these green friends with the community and those who enjoy a nature-based artistic creation.
