Ashley just got back from a walk in the woods!  Yup, that’s me, and I found some precious treasures to track in the house and drive my husband crazy with!  These organic foraged elements inspire and motivate my floral designs, resulting in innovative yet timeless compositions.  As a trained artist with a degree in Art History, I approach flowers as a true form of fine art and a great excuse to travel!  Nature is my first love and I am so grateful for the daily opportunity to experience its energy and to share this with you!

 

Floral Education and Influences

Laura Dowling: (2010 to present) Freelanced for her at The White House.  Created some killer bouquets! Learned about Catherine MullerGregor Lersch and Garden Style Design. Joined Laura’s Floralien Ghent team in Belgium to work on her installation.  This project was later featured in her new book,   Floral Diplomacy at The White House.  Continue to assist her with awesome projects, most recently presenting with Laura at The Philadelphia Flower Show's Designer Studio.
