I developed an early sense of style and composition through a host of creative avenues growing up. I was raised in the Quapaw Quarter of Downtown Little Rock among soirees and home tours, master gardeners, highly creative parents, and a church with a flower guild. I spent much of my childhood developing an understanding of many of the arts, while primarily focusing on music and ballet. I went into college majoring in vocal performance, and graduated with a Bachelor's in Visual Art. I went on spending most of my time developing my art business and developing my personal style.
Throughout the last year, I have made more time and space to arrange flowers as both a creative outlet, and as a revenue stream. I love the natural simplicity and effortless beauty of flowers, and the challenge of arranging them. Because this process has been such a joy for me, I have fully transitioned my business from painting to full-time wedding and floral design.
My experience as a painter has given me a strong awareness of design principles and composition, as well as a deep attention to detail. So, arranging tends to come naturally to me. In addition to floral and wedding design, I continue to paint commissions when available. The foundation of all of my work is cultivating beauty, be that in arrangements, events, or canvases. In my free time I renovate a little red brick bungalow with the love of my life, Ben.
