I stumbled into floral design. While working as an event planner for the Seattle Symphony, I realized that I was never happier than the three days prior to a gala when I would roll up my sleeves and put together all the centerpieces and installations myself. Friends and acquaintances were asking me to design their weddings so I started taking some floral design classes over the weekends. Little by little my business grew and in January 2008, I launched Finch & Thistle. I haven’t looked back.
My design influences are countless and my style is a mix of vintage and modern. You won’t find a 1-800 bouquet in my studio but if you are looking for serious design in a fun atmosphere, then you’re in the right place.
I spend my spare time traveling as far and wide as possible, working in my garden with my husband and chasing our two terriers around the park.
