Daphne has had a long term love affair with flowers and design starting with her time in Europe working at Gartnerei Arends-Maubach, a fourth generation perennial nursery in Germany. From Europe to the Northern coast of California all the way to the beautiful high desert of Western Colorado she has followed her plant muse through nursery work, landscaping, farming and designing. Nature in all of its perfection through its structure, color and form have helped to guide her design aesthetic. She is inspired by all colors and uses them masterfully, indulges in unique flowers that she refers to as her ‘jewels’ in arrangements and mostly she loves seeing the joy that her floral designs bring to her clients. It is that pure joy that the flowers bring to Daphne and her relationship with them that shines through her design and personality.
