Growing up on a small ranch in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, Amy was raised with a deep love and appreciation for everything nature has to offer. Spending a majority of her time enjoying the outdoors coupled with a born drive towards creativity made discovering floral design feel like a light bulb turning on. Finding the artful expression of the inherent beauty in nature is, for Amy, her hearts desire made flesh.
After exploring a wide variety of career options, all the while wishing to combine the love of nature and artistic expression, floral design presented itself to her. She began her journey at a small floral boutique in Lafayette where she then learned much of what she knows today. It wasn’t long before intrigue blossomed into passion and within just a few short months she went from apprentice to full on designer. It became not only a job, but the beginning of her art and the journey to founding Fern n’ Flora designs.
Amy strives to connect with all her clients and in turn work with them to accomplish their unique vision, whatever the occasion. Taking advantage of the high quality blooms and greens Mother Nature provides in the beautiful Bay Area, she prides herself in crafting organic, nature inspired designs full of life and movement. Her whimsical, free flowing style allows her to learn and grow with each event and ensures the expression of individual style of everyone she works with. When your eyes light up, she’ll know her job is done.
