Evolving as a Floral Designer...


One may ask what inspires someone to seek work within the industry of floral design. Perhaps it's the love of nature, the feeling of stems and leaves between fingers, or creating a small contained bit of color. For me in particular, it was the desire to have flowers everywhere. When someone would send flowers to the house, no matter how beautiful the arrangement, I would take it apart to touch, inhale, rebuild. A vase in the kitchen, a small bud vase by the bathroom sink or to the side of the bed. This placement always added so much joy! A spark of color is the perfect accoutrement. It may also have been sparked by the love of climbing trees, making more than just tents made of blankets, but creating arches of pine, and garlands of marigolds. Flowers should be everywhere.
