Introduction I grew up in a gardening family,and I've been obsessed ever since. I received my BFA in design from The University of Kansas,then continued to do freelance garden design until cold weather set in.That Fall, I then became a professional floral designer. I grew up working with flowers as a second nature,so fine floral design was like breathing to me. I opened my store Bergamot & Ivy 20 years ago and began doing interior design as well. My tastes are eclectic and vast,color is my forte.
