About

The artist and her work

Different. Curious. Wonder-Inspired.

We at Edges Wild are keepers of humankind’s longstanding tradition of gathering and arranging flowering plants to mark lifecycle rituals and celebrations, and we’re also here to evolve the art of floristry. We pride ourselves on delivering the unexpected; creating breathtaking collections with a distinctly botanist fingerprint that go “against the grain and leave the edges wild.” We believe flowers are medicine for the soul, and that beyond the symbolism we attach to favorite varieties and the nostalgia they can awaken, flowers stop us in our tracks with their sleepy-eyed fragrances, fluttery dances in every updraft, strange and angular particularity, and unexpected color transitions the likes of which our best painters work for years to achieve. They demand that we linger in the velvety now, and deal with its thorn-studded complexity. They get at what poet Mary Oliver called “that wild, silky part of ourselves.” In short, they access our ability to wonder, and we insist that wonder, with its unapologetic force and untamed edge, cracks open our imaginations and thus holds power to sustain us as individuals wherever we’re going in life AND move our communities forward in excellence, equity, and beauty, one dinner party at a time.

“Against the grain, and leave the edges wild, come now child.”
