Welcome to my home on the web! My name is Gloria Battista Collins and I am a floral designer, gardener, artist, photographer, and community builder.
I believe that a well-lived life begins with a dream or a fond memory. My most vivid recollection, from when I was a little girl, is sitting at my Mom’s kitchen table and drawing colorful flowers with crayons for what seemed like hours. My mother would encourage me by telling me how pretty my flowers were. Mom planted the seeds which later blossomed into what is now my passion for all things beautiful in the home and garden.
My passion for gardening grew into a floristry business specializing in weddings. What is unique to my business is that I grow flowers in my garden and use them in my arrangements. I am especially mindful to use organically grown flowers in my designs. I am a proponent of creating arrangements that reflect the seasons.
I‘ve been gardening since I can remember and I’m sharing my passion for gardening and all things flowers regularly in my monthly email newsletter and in my journal. I also host monthly House and Garden Inspiration Workshops in my home. Take a moment to learn more about my current list of services and contact me today. I’d love to discuss how we can collaborate and create something magical together!
Be sure to sign up for my monthly email newsletter where I share a behind the scenes look at how I’m working things out in life and in my garden. You can also follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.
I also hope you’ll join me on my Mighty Networks group Flowers. Art. Life.
