"The Art of Flora Forager is endlessly cool and filled with everything from peacocks to foraged versions of art masters like Van Gogh’s Starry Night."
—Zavvi Rodaine

"This interest in softly modeled three-dimensional collages is really revealing to me, because I think it helps to explain why Flora Forager’s representational collages are so delightful and impactful: the three-dimensional forms and fresh flowers create a sense of plausibility and give a lively presence to something that might not actually exist in reality."
—Alberti's Window
