About ChickSeed Studio

 

ChickSeed is the on-site art studio at Foster Road Farm where we grow a fantastic array of botanicals for local sales and events. These beauties are a primary source of inspiration for the designs and products we offer. A deep relationship develops when one starts a plant from seed, nurtures the seedling to maturity, selects blooms at their peak, then creates art that celebrates this ephemeral glory.

Design Sensibility

ChickSeed style is a distinctive blend of influences assimilated over my lifetime as an artist: a love of natural materials, printmaking and pattern design, the hues of the seasons in the Finger Lakes of New York State; cartographic elements from my years as a mapmaker; and the textures, forms and motifs that abound at this historic homestead farm, circa 1830. All these are combined using digital  tools and techniques to create a modern take on design traditions.
