my story: inspired by the garden

My lifelong passion for sharing the beauty of the garden led to the creation of the Garden Studio. My approach is to create garden style arrangements that are lush and alive with movement, overflowing with seasonal flowers, grasses, seed pods, and greenery, often just picked from the garden. Every arrangement, no matter how large or small, is an opportunity to create floral art that will transform a space and bring joy to others. 

I started out my career with degree in art studio, psychology and art therapy and led national and international training and technical assistance initiatives to improve human services for many years. However, I was determined to create art from nature’s beauty and finally took  the leap into the world of floral design. I sought out and received training from experts in floral design in the Washington, DC area and worked side by side with them for years. Today, I am proud to say that I am fully immersed in creating floral art – to inspire, create memories, and celebrate life, love, and family.
