I have a love for all things wild and natural, scented blossoms, mossy twigs and starry nights. Flowers simply make my heart sing. I believe the magic of growing and gathering was planted in me years ago as a young girl, working alongside my mother picking wildflowers and lily of the valley. How I create is deeply rooted in who I am; a floral designer, grower and potter. I feel my art background has been a really strong foundation for floral design as textures, color and design are all intertwined with both arts.
My deep connection to the natural surroundings of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rhythm of my garden's cycles creates an important link between working with the seasons and what each one offers up for gathering and creating. I honor this connection through the 'farm-to-event' movement in my floral work.
