I61studio: How would you describe your signature style?
Cindy: I like everything – I like traditional and classical, but also modern and simple. I also really like the romantic girly style, so it’s hard to pinpoint, but I really like clean, simple lines.
I61studio: What caused you to become interested in floral design?
Cindy: I’ve always liked flowers and thought it would be nice to do something in this industry. I wanted to do something fun and creative, even though there’s a lot of hard work behind doing flowers.
I61studio: Do you remember the first professional event you ever did on your own?
Cindy: I’m trying to remember…it was more for friends and family when I first started out, but it was still nerve racking because I was on my own and not working for someone else.
I61studio: Who is your biggest inspiration or influence?
Cindy: There are a lot of different designers out there, but I would say Preston Bailey and Jeff Leatham. You can see their hard work and where it’s brought them and they enjoy it – it’s their passion.
I61studio: What is your favorite flower?
Cindy: I would say my favorite flower is the peony.
I61studio: What inspires you right now?
Cindy: I think anything and everything. Even art, nature, other designers – not necessarily flowers, but even architecture and people. A lot of different things.

I61studio: What do you like to do in your free time?
Cindy: I like to shop, I like being outdoors, I like to read… and I’m also addicted to TV reality shows like Top Chef!
I61studio: What do you love most about doing what you do?
Cindy: What I really love doing is being able to create and re-interpret the client’s vision – Bringing everything together, the colors, textures, different elements… and seeing it all come together.
