My name is Shannon Hagen. Flowers transport me to another world. They provide me with inspiration, joy, creativity, expression, and love. Simply put, I love to create beauty. Colors evoke emotion and convey feeling. The artful blend of color, shape, and texture create a sense of movement, balance, and life. My philosophy is that flowers and foliage should be honored in their natural form and celebrated for their individual beauty, including all of their subtle variations and perfect imperfections.
As a Northwest native I grew up on the Olympic Peninsula, surrounded by old growth forests, rivers, and mountains. Our yard was filled with flower beds, fruit and nut trees, vegetable gardens and berry patches. My mother was always working on some type of gardening, sewing, or crafting project, Her creative spirit influenced me greatly and fostered my interest and appreciation for nature and the subtle art of handcrafted design.
