Greetings from the Studio ...
It's been a while since we've been in touch as we have been busy settling into our NEW studio space here at Flourish Root. We moved in this past Spring and have been taking the time to enjoy our new space and all the light and possibilities it has brought us these past months.
Hence, the above photo -- a glimpse into one of the amazing projects we have been involved in this season. There have been all sorts of doors opening for us which have led to upcoming creative and flowering endeavours which we are pleased to share with you -- our friends and clients.
