I come from a family of gardeners, flower-lovers & hobby florists. For as long as I can remember, flowers were a major inspiration throughout my life.
Both of my grandmothers are constantly working in their gardens and sending me home with seeds and gardening tools. During my childhood, one of my grandfathers was always shin-deep in his Koi pond or building neat flower containers. My other grandfather tends to a dozen at-home beehives. My mother was President of our local Flower Club for years and introduced me to competitive flower shows at the age of 8. One of my dad’s favorite hobbies is pushing dirt and mowing grass. My uncle owned a landscaping business and I love hearing stories about his holiday wreath-making ventures.
Hearing stories from my family members and their gardening and floral trials excites me. It makes me feel as though my love for flowers was instilled in my genes.
I enjoy using up-cycled materials and things found in thrift stores, at estate sales, or from local auctions to make my designs memorable. I love being dirty and growing my own flowers. My design philosophy is earthy, romantic and unconventional. It is marked by bright colors, extreme craftiness, and unlikely pairings. I simply do what pleases my eyes and makes my heart sing. I strive to provide the best quality and craftsmanship available while carrying out my creative duties.
After graduating from Millersville University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Communication, I spent several years working with local web design and online marketing companies. In 2011, I began taking floral design classes and knew that an office cubicle was not meant for me. In May of 2013, I left the office environment and created Little Miss Lovely. I am beyond thankful for the support I have received since the start of Little Miss Lovely and am excited for all of the clients I will meet in the future.
