Paula de la Cruz
After twelve years of working as an art director in the “pixelated world of digital advertising,” Paula de la Cruz went on to study horticulture at The School of Professional Horticulture at The New York Botanical Garden. Argentinean by birth but New Yorker by choice, Paula started writing after penning her experiences as a horticultural intern at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town, South Africa for Lexus Magazine. She now combines her passions for plants, travel, writing and design with her “nomadic instinct” at her design studio, Allscape Design. She has covered stories from caper cultivation in Pantelleria, Italy, to turtle conservation in Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. ￼
