WEST & ROCK
West represents our love for the West Coast of Florida, our home. Our Rock solidifies the anchor through our daily life to building beautiful designs for our clients. Our pieces feature ethically handcrafted creations, each designed to be as unique as the muse who uses them.
"My love for florals has always been a connection with my desire to craft and design, but I really love making beautiful things around me and making others happy when their dreams come together when we seek the magic through their celebrations!"
FOUNDER + FLORAL ARTIST
Born and raised in Southwest Florida, my husband and I spent over a decade living in Los Angeles pursuing our careers as artists, where my inspirations for West & Rock were born.
After the birth of our first son in LA, we wanted to make a way back to our roots & hometown. West & Rock organically bloomed out of the most sacred of places for me; and my deep love for the west coast of Florida and SoCal became the growing pot for my floral inspirations through the simple beauty of nature, water, and sun.
My passion for floral design carries over with the love for the business that now has captured my heart. By combining my passion and a deep love of flowers, West & Rock had a chance to grow.
As the principal floral artist, I focus on producing exclusive and creative floral designs you can’t find elsewhere. I want your celebration to be unique and set a part from the rest.
I have always pursued my vision with intention, building West & Rock with a desire to create a space to give back directly to outreach the Southwest Florida community, with a focus on empowering women-led organizations and brands. When I'm not busy creating floral art the most important hat I wear is mom to two little boys. As collective husband and wife creatives, most days you'll find us in the studio. I'm usually processing flowers while my husband still works full time in the movie industry, but I'll summon his help for West & Rock every now and again. Our humble studio walls are packed with an eclectic mix of florals, FX prosthetics, sculptural creatures & curiosities from across the seas and around the world. With 21 years together, and 16 years of marriage under our belt we really look forward to being a part of your incredible celebration.
As much as we are passionate about designing impactful events that are personal and unique to each client. We are equally passionate about doing business better and are built on the idea that little things can have a big impact and an opportunity to spread a simple act of kindness, where we’re truly rooted in our purpose. While we do many unspoken things for others, we actively repurpose and donate fresh florals through W/R events and other generous donations to Hope Hospice that would otherwise be discarded.
