Woman who makes dresses from leaves

Hello,

I am trying to track down a Vancouver artist that I've met before who makes dresses and crowns and other amazing things by using thorns to hold together leaves. She is always looking for thorns and a big hawthorn came down at one of the gardens I care for and I want to contact her. Does anyone know her name?

Thanks,

Laura Ralph

Glad to help. I love the "Flower frocks" in link 4! Do hope she can put your thorns to good use.
