Lisa Rogers also works and volunteers as a science and garden educator and began following a creative path with natural dyeing. Lisa learned about ecoprinting, printing leaves on fabric and paper, over a decade ago and was captivated.

Through reading, online workshops and a lot of experimentation, she aims to create functional, fun, one-of-a-kind pieces, hand dyed or printed using botanicals.
