It all started because Corrie Beth Hogg wanted a fiddle leaf fig tree in her very dark living room. She knew a live one would never survive so she made one using paper, paper mache, wood dowels, and paint. Turned out she loved making them!
It has been a challenge and a treat for her to discover what other plants she can craft out of paper. She’s always been a lifelong “tree hugger” and crafter. And she’s always enjoyed being in nature and by making plants, she’s combining two of her big loves. Because she lives in NYC, she spends a lot of time at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden searching for inspiration and admiring all the plants – plants that would never survive in her apartment. So, if she sees something she likes, she make it with paper.
