Last month I had the pleasure of collaborating on a fun and experimental photoshoot with photographer Anastasia Cheatham, florist and all around plant whisperer Evelyn Block and model Naomi Ning in my Eastern Market studio.

We played around with my plant dyed textiles, with Evelyn's grown and foraged flowers and unique antique props and herbal skin remedies and tonics from her line Seed & Bone. We had so much fun interpreting nature and movement through airy plant dyed silks, a giant fallen tree branch, a foraged grapevine and some luscious stone fruits.

Getting together on a creative project with no expectations or requirements and simply going along with where your inspiration calls you is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I had such a lovely time collaborating on this photoshoot and adore the photos that came of it.

The result is so inspiring and beautiful. I just love how the colors of Rosemarine Textiles compliment fellow natural elements of the plants and fruits the dyes came from. Thanks so much to my fellow collaborators for working together with me on this.
