Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design


toiling floral art design

"The professional dedicates himself to mastering technique not because he believes technique is a substitute for inspiration…

Chive flower heads with moss lichen and mushrooms

… but because he wants to be in possession of the full arsenal of skills when inspiration does come.

Dowel stick floral container

The professional is sly.

Dried mushrooms

He knows...

Wooden floral containers.

that by toiling beside the front door of technique,

Display delicate flowering stems

he leaves room

Chive flowers in bud

for genius

Chive flower heads with moss lichen and mushrooms in a dowel stick container

to enter by the back."

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
