Gallery of Impermanent Art
This gallery changes with the seasons and the ebb and flow of my work. It serves as a petite bouche of my portfolio. Visit again soon to enjoy its evolution. Contact Brooke if you have something specific in mind, but don’t see it here.
Part of the appeal of the floral industry is the ever changing market. Like restaurants, we don’t have total control of what’s on offer, nor can we guarantee certain colors. Just like gourmet food, the seasons generally dictate which blooms will stun. There are some, like roses, that are easy to get year round. There are others that only appear for a few short weeks and are gone for the rest of the year. Every now and then, something shocking happens and you find flowers in the cooler that have no right to be there at that time of the year yet are clearly in their prime.
If you’re particular and plan in advance, it’s probably best to come to the cooler with me so we can design together. If you can’t meet up with me in person, but you do have a little time before you need your flowers, I can send you pictures from the market. Keep in mind that due to dithering, the colors on your computer monitor or cell phone never are a true match to what things look like in real life.
True floristry is a process through which an artist coaxes the aethereal into the corporeal. It is emotional sculpture that has a fleeting shelf life.
Like sushi, it’s ideal for you to trust me entirely. Feel free to give me a set budget and let me run wild.
