Seeds, not Bombs!

These flower boxes I created out of old military gun shipping crates. I am not a supporter of violence nor war. I wanted these living boxes to represent Seeds, Not Bombs! The containers themselves make for a great space to cultivate little gardens! They are then placed on top of one of our hand-welded stands and can be watered just like you would a regular garden box/garden! Should you be interested in one for your space, do email me. They will be available soon too through my website/shop. The one above is about four months old and is thriving.


Back in May, TIGERS to LILIES had the unique task of adding 'life' to the Unique LA event by bringing in plants/trees/flower boxes along with our brand of hand-welded plant stands. Unique LA is a  weekend mart for all creatives here in Los Angeles - a showcase and opportunity for local brands to introduce their products and shine. Working alongside one of my brothers, we managed to add some much needed green spirit to the large space and couldn't have been more proud!

I still operate from a family-base, meaning that when I need something designed/welded/built/created/delivered (sometimes by motorcycle!) I turn to either one of my adeptly skilled brothers, my husband Elijah, or my assistant Jessica. We are a tight unit and operate very well together. Something that I am quite proud of and most grateful for.

Thank you again Unique LA!

√Čtudiante / My Student

Friends, I have something to share with you. I usually enjoy working solo. I don't like having to stop my thought processes to explain a thing or two or, well, having to stop period. Especially while I'm in the flow. However, a lovely flower-lover and extremely bright and diligent student happened to really carve a big place in my heart.

Just a little word about my étudiante, Jesscia: you are wonderful. You learn by observing + paying attention. It has been really wonderful watching you develop into your own while maintaining the very essence of what I have worked so hard to establish as the spirit of Tigers to Lilies. I am honored to have you by my side. Thank you for all of your hard work. It never goes unnoticed.

Flowers for a Photographer

I always feel like I get the loveliest of commissions asked of me. These flowers were for world renown photographer Gilles Bensimon. They also happen to be one of my very favorite arrangements to date. I was deeply honored, and deeply inspired.
