Bridget Beth Collins is an artist who rarely goes to shops to pick up her supplies. The Pacific Northwest resident opts out of using paints and brushes, instead, she chooses flower petals, berries, leaves, moss, and anything nature can offer to produce colorful and exotic pieces. “I forage almost all of my creations from foliage and flowers plucked from our sidewalks, meadows, and woods in our neighborhood,” says Collins. The botanical artist uses the flora to recreate vibrant, wild animals like a peacock and a delicate seahorse. Collins admits her *Flora Forager* work is a result of her love affair with Mother Nature.
