GALVEZ + PARTNERS
Christopher “BOATS” Oshana is a father, husband, veteran, student and photographer. My greatest inspiration is life and what it has to offer. I started taking photos when I joined the Navy back in 1984, but was never able to truly pursue my passion because of my time in the service. After I retired from service to our country I picked up the camera again, and it was a photo of one of my twin daughters that reignited the passion.
I am currently attending Phoenix College in pursuit of an AAS in Digital Photography and have become more focused on the pursuit of doing this for a living. I have to thank my family, friends, mentors Christopher Barr of Christopher Barr Photography and Michael Meyers of3D Design Visualization/Concept Design, for their support in my endeavors. Since 2007, when I picked the camera backup I have received numerous awards for my photography including the Maricopa County Community College District Artist of Promise winner in 2011, the Western Eye Photography Competition 2012 and in 2013 I was granted work space and an internship with Wayne Rainey at the monorchid Gallery and Rainey Studios.

The Bosque is proud to announce the opening of their new shop in the fabulous monorchid located on Roosevelt Row, downtown Phoenix
The Bosque is thrilled to offer unusual botany + curated live goods.
Adding to the booming unique and vibrant culture developing downtown, a brand new start-up plant shop has put roots down inside the stunning monOrchid gallery. The Bosque is a refreshing store full of life adding something that is necessary to a new modern Phoenix: Plants!
With a penchant for the unusual, The Bosque is proud to root itself into the heart of the downtown Arts community inside monOrchid, a cultural arts anchor and 15 year veteran of downtown Phoenix’s rebirth. The Bosque has a focus on sharing unusual and refreshing indoor and mounted plants and has a wide inventory, ranging from small perennial succulents and cacti to vines and larger trees. The Bosque also carries carnivorous plants, ferns, bromeliads, air plants, unusual terrariums and gladly offers special ordering. Home goods and gifts gathered from around Arizona are offered as well, such as a large collection of early Arizona Highways, vintage botanical prints, greeting cards, older machines, and cameras. The Bosque aims to help you create your own oasis in the desert metropolis that is modern Phoenix.
The Bosque is the unique brainchild of a young third-generation Arizona-native Michael Lanier. Michael grew up in Queen Creek and spent all four years of high school competing in Arizona Wildlife competitions. After studying Botany in college and interning for the USDA Arid Land Agricultural Research Service, Michael decided to uproot himself to Boston, where after a short time, he concluded that while you could leave the desert, the desert doesn’t really leave you. Unable to settle back into small town life, Michael settled himself into a small bungalow in the Garfield Arts district, referring to it more as a village than a neighborhood. He started actively integrating himself into the community, starting ‘The Planted Parkways Initiative’ to green the barren streets of Downtown. Within a few months, The Bosque was created on a small screen patio and the Phoenix Public Market on Saturdays, where it thrived. After an incredible extended spring, the plants started wilting in the heat of the market and it was officially time to begin looking for something a little more permanent, which brought The Bosque to the monOrchid, a vibrant local business/arts incubator at the very heart of Roosevelt Row’s.
