How We Began
Our journey started over 10 years ago in Northern California, working in landscape design. Adapting beautifully arranged plants into wall art began as an experiment and became an innovative challenge: we wanted to create green, botanical art at any scale; and it had to be stunning, unique and easy to care for. The result is Artisan Moss.
After working with living walls, our concern about their upkeep and longevity led us to develop a simplified solution for turning green walls into effortless indoor art. Through trial and error we discovered how to eliminate many of the challenges with living walls – an Artisan Moss piece doesn’t require water. There’s no expensive grow lights, fertilizer or chemicals. No onsite plumbing or reinforced walls…we make it easy to enjoy nature’s beauty indoors! Read more about how we create our green walls here.
In today’s busy digital world, we underestimate the importance of maintaining a connection with nature. We love bringing the outdoors into the heart of an indoor space, and creating art from our ultimate source of inspiration: our love of nature.
Erin Kinsey, Artisan Moss Lead Designer & Owner
Erin Kinsey was born and raised in the forests of Northern California, instilling within her a life-long devotion to creating art with natural materials. While attending California State University, she spent equal time working as a landscape designer, muralist and fine art restorer. Creating ‘plant paintings’ with moss was a natural result of those three jobs.
With inspiration from environmental artists such as Azuma Makoto and Andy Goldsworthy, Erin has developed a style uniquely her own – utilizing organic, natural forms in a contemporary way.
Working with the philosophy of ‘Be the change you wish to see’, Erin enjoys the opportunity to push her creativity, and to always be more innovative in combining her two passions: plants and great design.
