What are my framing choices?2020-06-23T21:06:43-06:00

I like to approach each project on an individual basis. However I do offer basic parameters: two styles of framing, the Modern Botanical or Classic with Float Mount. A variety of color choices: gallery black, bone white, natural maple, oak with charcoal, rosewood, or pecan stain. In addition I love the look of wrought iron and iron frames.

How do I extend the life of my flowers?2020-06-23T21:09:02-06:00

To extend the life of your flowers; give the stems a fresh cut at an angle under water. Refresh vase and water each day. Display flowers away from maturing fruit which release the ripening gas called ethylene also out of direct sun.

Consider pressed flower art as a way of extending the life of your flowers.
