√Čtudiante / My Student

Friends, I have something to share with you. I usually enjoy working solo. I don't like having to stop my thought processes to explain a thing or two or, well, having to stop period. Especially while I'm in the flow. However, a lovely flower-lover and extremely bright and diligent student happened to really carve a big place in my heart.

Just a little word about my étudiante, Jesscia: you are wonderful. You learn by observing + paying attention. It has been really wonderful watching you develop into your own while maintaining the very essence of what I have worked so hard to establish as the spirit of Tigers to Lilies. I am honored to have you by my side. Thank you for all of your hard work. It never goes unnoticed.

Flowers for a Photographer

I always feel like I get the loveliest of commissions asked of me. These flowers were for world renown photographer Gilles Bensimon. They also happen to be one of my very favorite arrangements to date. I was deeply honored, and deeply inspired.

Hi friends. Save the Date!
Much more info to come but this is going to be a really lovely workshop set in the beautiful gardens at The Ecology Center, led by me.
(I'm even baking a geranium rose summer cake for you)!

all fujiflex prints by Gilles Bensimon

If you're experiencing hot weather like we are here in Los Angeles, then perhaps these underwater flower prints by world renown fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon might cool you off. The photographer spent two years shooting these fresh blooms underwater, all of which he chose himself. His exhibit (2013) appropriately titled Watercolours was his first venture into fine art photography. Don't they look like watercolors or modern day representations of impressionists' paintings? So refreshing to see flowers used in this medium.

I’ve always been obsessed with water, even in the fashion pictures I’ve done. I swim every day. I spend so much time in the water, some days four or five hours. And I’ve also always been passionate for flowers. I love gardens.
