"I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars"

Walt Whitman

 

I am originally from Missouri.  It is so green there.  I moved to California when I was a child.  My memories are of rolling green hills, thunderstorms, fireflies, and icicles. I've always loved being outside. The peace that this earth has to offer has always called to me, asking me to sit and be still.  I find my greatest pleasure among the beauty that this earth has to offer.  The wildlife, the wide open fields, the funky flower that buds atop a weed, it is all beauty.

 

90% of the flowers I use are grown in San Luis Obispo County and along the central coast of California. 

I gravitate towards the romantic and whimsical, open heirloom blooms and wild natural greens.

Women have forever been crowned in flowers to express their beauty.  It is also one of my favorite things to do.
