Inspiration comes from many sources, including flowers. There are literally hundreds of flower varieties, and millions of potential combinations and arrangements to suit any mood, situation, setting or personality.
I am constantly searching for new ways to inspire others through the language of flowers. I love everything that activates the senses, and that love influences every aspect of my life. You could say that I have a spiritual connection with flowers, and that connection has become a driving force in my life.
I specialize in event design because I love to represent the client?s unique personality and style in designs. I also conduct teaching workshops on floral design to share my passion for flowers and to give others pride in their accomplishments.
After several years of business, banking and hospitality management, I decided to focus my time and energy on interior plantscaping, garden design and installation. From there, I became a floral designer.
I managed retail flower shops for several years, rising to become a certified member of AIFD in 2004. I am active in AIFD and proudly attend its National Symposium and Southern chapter conference each year to further my knowledge and learn new techniques and concepts.
Upon moving to Florida in 2006, I opened Signature Florals in 2007. Signature is a boutique business - not a typical retail shop. The customer always comes first, from consultation to execution. I can deliver "traditional" for those who want it, but I am at my very best when clients want floral design that is truly extraordinary and different.
I provide wedding flowers primarily in these areas: Naples, Marco Island, Bonita, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva. I design mitzvahs, private parties, fund raisers and corporate events as well.
I love what I do and have been blessed with amazing customers and the friendship of wonderful people that specialize in planning weddings and other special events in Southwest Florida.
When not designing, I like to be by the water and in nature. I enjoy all forms of artistic expression and try my hand at numerous other art forms.
