I have always loved being in the garden surrounded by nature and designing with flowers. I love working with unique textures and bright colors.
Flowers add a timeless beauty to our environment and generate joy and comfort to all. I love adding little scented surprises from my garden to elevate your designs with scents. Growing flowers from my studio garden allows me to enjoy the natural world, watch nature come to life.
I started my creative journey in 1989 in the visual arts and I have continued my studies through the years. I am a firm believer in continued education, you are never too old to learn something new. Going back to college in my late forties to study ornamental horticulture, attending workshops and learning from the best designers from around the world has helped me to grow as a person and as a designer and because of this I can offer my clients a unique design prospective.
In the last few years I have been shifting to more sustainable practices, growing some of my own foliages and trying to shop locally sourced and seasonal flowers. I want to support our local flower farmers and businesses, by buying American grown flowers whenever possible. When we buy local, seasonally blooms, by color palettes and textures instead of being flower specific we can enjoy the natural bounty that Mother Nature and the seasons provide while helping our local economy.
We can all play a part in protecting our natural resources. To learn more about sustainable practices and the Slow Flowers Society visit their website @ www.slowflowers.com
I look forward to speaking with you soon about your special project and hopefully introducing you to some new flowers to fall in love with .
