It's on, we're finally here!
So excited to finally have moved.
Its a LOT transplanting from a large city with virtually limitless resources (and competition), to a smaller, quieter, more community (and arts oriented) locale.
And to be with my family again! <3
Equally different is the transition from working for others in a retail event position, I did this for 15 years- 'cutting my teeth,' 'learning the ropes,' 'paying my dues...' and boy did I learn, I went in to this profession, our craft, as a fourth-generation designer bent on educating myself while creating a personal floral design style, and came out the other side ready to use all I've learned to further my efforts to advance the art + science of floral design.
I'll be participating this fall and winter in a few Mitten-state floral design activities in addition to the ones I already live for in Chicago and Milwaukee. One being Nature's Creative Edge, held every fall in MI on legendary Bob Freise's property. This will be the last year, and I am super stoked to participate with my mom!
I'll be stretching my wings out here in he Ann Arbor/ Ypsi / Detroit area if you have any friends in the area please recommend my work, and wish me luck this July at AIFD Symposium as I will be inducted into the American Institute of Floral Designers, at our National Symposium in Denver, CO.
As always, I'm up for hire, locally and for travel. Day rates by request. <3
