Plant Dyer / Art Teacher / Mega Multi-Tasker / Humanitarian
I met Brooke by seeing her in the magazine edible San Joaquin, cold-messaging her through @instagram, and asking her for an interview. She graciously accepted and the rest it history. Actually herstory!
Brooke invited me into her home and her studio.
The minute I arrived and fully realized how full this woman's life is,
I felt so humbled that she had made time for me - a literal stranger
- to invite me into her world.
Brooke and I gel like old sisters. We are neither old, nor sisters, but you get the point. By the time she was done with me,
I was sitting on concrete watching her mash flowers into fabric with a rubber mallet.
Now that's what we call a good time, folks!
I adore her passion for making the world a better place
- through teaching others, through helping others, and through using kitchen "waste" to create beautiful, sustainable, wearable art.
Brooke is a total gem.
