Using a wild, romantic style, my designs exude an emotional, organic, freshly picked from the garden mood. I specialize in custom floral designs for corporate events, personal and business interiors, styled shoots and everyday enjoyment. All of my arrangements are crafted from a diverse range of thoughtfully selected products- foraged, grown from local farms, and sourced from the best farms from around the globe.
With an inherent passion for art and nature I began creating at a young age. Growing up surrounded by Texas wildflowers and summers on the San Marcos River, simplicity and nature were a part of my daily life from a young age. Helping my mother work in the backyard garden was my first introduction to floristry and, little did I know, the beginning of my love affair with flowers. In elementary school, I won awards for my bold art projects and by high school my love of the creative arts grew even deeper when I was given my first 35 mm camera and discovered black and white photography. When I did not have a camera around my neck, I was on stage competing in dance and theater competitions. My experience in the events world led me to explore my love and appreciation for design and to eventually open my own floral design studio.
As a freelance designer, I had the pleasure of collaborating with many gifted floral designers including Bows and Arrows, The Byrd Collective, The Nouveau Romantics and Coby Neal. The style of each artist varies dramatically as do their clientele. Working with these artists provided me with a profound opportunity to sharpen my own skills, technique, and find my voice while continuously learning and gaining inspiration. My work for many of these artists and as a solo designer has been published in online and print publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake and Love and Lavender.
Whether it is creating a quick centerpiece from a few foraged flowers, photographing the sky after a daytime shower, or working in the garden, I am truly is happiest when using my hands and mind on a creative project. I bring thoughtful design concepts and an innovative vision fused with meticulous organization and down-to-earth charm.
