I have added some of my portfolio online here from our former flower shop DeVon's Beautiful Blossoms in Lake Oswego Or.. Most all of the custom work shown here was an actual paid order from a client. I can recreate any fresh flower arrangement into silk or permanent botanical flowers no problem! I find that the cost of fresh flowers and permanent are comparable, and worth the investment. In most cases you can not tell the difference between them, silk are so life like and realistic.

I am a custom Interior Floral Artist with 37 years hands on experience in the floral industry, internationally recognized for excellence in design and creativity. My specialty is You! I come by appointment. into your home or office (for local customers) helping you add the finishing touches to your decor or event with my fabulous permanent and fresh flower arrangements! Online for custom orders I keep you in the loop with pictures and can Skype you too.
Weddings, births, proms, special occasions, funeral and sympathy design play a very special role in my floral artistry, flowers soften any and all occasions in life and bring lasting memory to our lives. This service to our community is most important to me. I am a multimedia artist, I have designed a line of red carpet evening bags, ribbon belts and hand wrapped and beaded flower pins, for your hair, hats or any personal fashion accessory. Please ask if you are interested, I have a large portfolio to view!
Over the decades I have also been a judge and have taught classes, DIY is also an option upon request for local customers.
