what we do:

HANDCRAFTED PAPER BOTANICALS

We believe in the value of one of a kind pieces made by hand as our world moves steadily into mass production.

We have a passion for nature and paper and finding the line where these two things can meet and come together.

OUR MANIFESTO

hi, I'm emily and i am thrilled you're here.

I'm a botanical artist and educator living and working in Washington, DC.

I've always loved all things botanical but couldn't keep a plant alive to save my life.

I came to paper flowers in an unusual way.

PAPER FLOWERS SAVED MY LIFE.

A dramatic but true statement.

After the birth of my oldest child, I was desperate for an outlet that had nothing to do with my new role as a mother. I was merely existing and flailing in the depths of postpartum depression. In my darkest hour, I needed something to hold onto and making paper flowers in the floor of a nursery ended up being it. I made a paper flower every day for a year. It became a ritual. The ultimate self care. I had finally found light amongst the darkness.

I'm a one woman show.
