Since launching Articulture Designs in 2009, Monique Capanelli has worked tirelessly to change the way people perceive plants, specifically through an artistic lens. Now, with a new location on Manchaca Road — complete with a 2,200 square foot studio space, a gift boutique and an outdoor garden — Capanelli’s seedling vision is in full bloom.
The self-proclaimed “art-repreneur” grew up in Northern California with a family passionate about gardening. When Capanelli wasn’t foraging through the creek beds around her home searching for driftwood to use in garden mobiles, her parents were teaching her about propagation, pollination and how to naturally prevent predators. This education as a child blossomed into passion as an adult, the fruits of which are evidenced through the wide range of botanical design work undertaken at Articulture.
