Sharla Royeppen Artist Statement

Going back as far as I can remember into my childhood, I have always been curious and enthralled by the environment around me. As an adult, my fields of study were obvious: botany and zoology. So began my journey of discovery.

It gives me great pleasure to recreate the feelings of excitement in my adult life by studying, and then sculpting, botanicals out of paper.

The world is moving towards a more sustainable existence. My knowledge of botany is aligned with an eco-friendly, sustainable product.

Thank you for investing in creative botanical art education!
