floral design 

I have been a freelance floral designer for over a dozen different floral designers in the Bay Area, some of the most well-known being Studio Mondine, Natalie Bowen Designs, and Max Gill. 

For me, floral design is a kind of physical, sculptural poetry; an intimate and meaningful time to immerse in the art of creating. I try to use foraged, unusual flowers and fruits and work with foam-free structures when possible. I love working with other creatives, and seeing how simple floral designs can make so many people feel joy.

Below are some examples of my floral designs - a whimsical culmination of a petaled harvest.
