Commissions

Worth the Investment

My Philosophy

 consider paper floral making as a form of fine art. Each and every paper floral I design is intricately crafted with love and care. I believe that paper floral art is worth the investment: it can capture a feeling or a moment in time for years to come. 

I am very much an observer of the natural environment: how a climbing vines wrap their arms around their neighbours; how small wild flowers hover like butterflies over the meadow; how cut blooms can droop out of water. My artistic aesthetic is very much garden-inspired, with abundant foliage and blooms, thoughtful textural elements and flowy, organic, non-traditional shapes.

I believe in making every paper flower by my own two hands. Using various weights of crepe paper from Germany, Italy, and China, I often take the extra step of dying or painting the paper myself to achieve the ideal colour, texture, and depth for each and every paper flower. I also use non-paper materials when the design calls for them.

I Make Custom Designs to Order

Currently, I offer custom designs and commissions for all my special clients. Since every design is bespoke, the planning process is also unique with each client.

I start with an initial discussion with you to determine a timeline and plan. I understand that timing is a priority for all my clients, however, I may decide not to take on a client’s commission and/or custom order if I feel that I cannot provide delivery within the required time frame due to the labour intensive nature of paper floral art. I ask that any inquiries for commissioned and/or custom orders (that are in large numbers) be made at last 12 weeks in advance of the expected delivery date. 

Pricing is determined only once you and I have confirmed the materials being used, the labour involved, and any installation and/or travelling. My large bouquets/arrangements start at $450 (plus applicable taxes for Canadians), and my smaller bouquets/arrangements range from $120 to $280. If the items require shipping, I can provide you with a quote at the time of our initial discussion, to be confirmed and paid at the time of delivery.

We will also discuss your vision for this bouquet or arrangement, including the colour scheme, desired mood to convey, and specific flower requests. If it is for an arrangement, we will also discuss the type of vase and the cost.

I also take on commissions for single stem flowers or loose stem bouquets which are perfect for 1st year Paper Anniversary gifts, birthday gifts, and/or home decor. 

I have in the past, taken on commercial commissions, for window displays and editorial styling shoots.
