About Artisan Moss
We began over 10 years ago in Northern California working with plants in landscape design. This passion led us to finding a simplified solution for adapting our plant designs into wall art for the home and office. More about Artisan Moss:
It had to be stunning, unique and easy to care for.
After quite some time of experimenting and research in the studio, we have developed beautiful and easy-to-care-for botanical art. Along the way of refining our process, Artisan Moss was born.
We wanted to create green botanical art at any scale.
Through trial and error we discovered that we needed to eliminate many of the challenges with traditional living walls. The unique works from the Artisan Moss studio don’t require the same tedious maintenance, excessive watering or complicated lighting requirements. Rather, we make it easy to enjoy nature’s beauty effortlessly. More details about our work HERE.
More about our Lead Designer and Owner:
Erin Kinsey was born and raised in Northern California. First of all, the spectacular nature and wildlife of the Sierras and Coastal Range have driven her passion since childhood. While attending California State University, she spent equal time working as a landscape designer, muralist and fine art restorer. She came to the realization that, in this digital age, we underestimate the importance of maintaining a connection with nature. After graduation, her emphasis on graphic design led to the creation of Artisan Moss.
While living walls have become popular, their on-going maintenance makes them less than ideal. In seeking a solution, Erin consequently experimented with a variety of botanical materials with the goal of creating living works of art for indoor display. With inspiration from contemporary environmental artists such as Azuma Makoto and Andy Goldsworthy, Erin has finally found a style uniquely her own that integrates the ultimate source of inspiration: her love of nature. Working with the philosophy of be the change you wish to see, she began crafting individual works of art that bring the outdoors inside. Each piece is an original work of art – no two are identical.
