I am an artist and floral designer based out of Vallejo, CA and working throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. My childhood roots are in the foothills of beautiful North Carolina. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Art + Design from North Carolina State University, where I studied painting, printmaking, photography, and fiber arts.
I had several solo art shows in San Francisco and the East Bay before learning the floristry trade and beginning my career in floral design. I've worked for premier floral designers in San Francisco, New York City, Napa, and Sonoma, and in 2012 began my own floral design business, JKN Designs, which has been featured in Sonoma Magazine, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled, Simply Peachy, Sonoma Weddings, and Triad Weddings. My passion for the natural world influences my choice to source flowers from local growers and to implement green + sustainable practices in my studio.
Since becoming a mother in 2016, I have happily returned to canvas and paper and now juggle motherhood with floral design and art making.
