Hi! My name is Kara. I am new to Posh but have been designing for almost 5 years in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I found a passion for floral work while studying botany in collage and very much appreciated the creative outlet flowers gave me. Working with my hands has become an important part of who I am and how I want to spend my time. I have fallen blissfully in love with the pursuit of this craft and am so happy to be a part of the Posh team!
What is your favorite flower?
As far as flowers go, I am partial to lilac and forget-me-not; they are tricky to work with but if I get my hands on them for designing I am the happiest gal!
What do you love most about your job?
I love the medium of flowers more than anything, the tactile experience of working with them is totally magic to me. There is something so genuine about giving flowers to others- they are not an everlasting gift, but a fleeting beauty that has the ability to captivate people none the less, and being able to share that with others is incredibly gratifying.
What inspires you?
I pull quite a bit of inspiration from the natural world, primarily the woods and waterways of the Upper Peninsula where I started developing my passion for floral work. Nature and her realm provide all the materials needed to create a beautiful bouquet, with textures, colors and the lot. I love all things botanical, growing and green which lends to my more sprawling, organic design style.
