Kix Nottebohm moved to Guatemala in 1980, after graduating from Mount Holyoke College with a degree in art history. When she left the United States, she brought with her childhood memories of Virginia, especially the family home on the James River, filled with English boxwood, tulip poplar trees, and crepe myrtle. As she explored Guatemala, visiting coffee and macadamia farms with her husband, Tommy, she fell in love with the tropical landscape and its exotic tree ferns, wild orchids, and bromeliads.
