Last Sunday was one of the brightest highlights of all my floral work over the past years: I was honored with the opportunity to teach a workshop at the Norton Simon Museum! I married two subjects that I love so dearly for this workshop: storytelling + flower arranging. What a wonderful, fun-filled afternoon we had all set in the zen garden at the museum! Above are a few outtakes from my workshop. I have to say that I am always so touched by everyone's intentions behind their creations, especially so when they share their stories at the end of class. Every story was so different and every arrangement stood apart. They were stunning! Such keen floral work and with such nuanced intentions. I was very proud of everyone who participated.

More stories and wildflowers here

Thank you so kindly to everyone who showed up and participated in this afternoon of flowers and stories. It was an honor to have you! 

A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to the Norton Simon museum for this gracious opportunity!

A few shots from an installation we did over at En Soie. We created a curtain out of pressed petals to unveil their SS15 collection! It was so much fun and a lot of work, but extremely gratifying to create such a massive piece with our hands. It felt substantial too. Even though our materials were extremely light, it had a really wonderful weight to it. 

I have to say it was nice getting to put some of my pressed petals to good use too. Have I mentioned that I have books and books filled with so many pressed petals in between them. Patient little jewels  waiting to be seen...
