  • Ali helped me *be* an artist!

    "She empowered me to release the judgment of if my work was "good" or "right." I came away with a few really cool paintings and have since used one to display different affirmations on my desk! Can't wait to tap into my creativity more with Ali!" 

    — Allison KT, Founder & Chief Hype Gal, Poppylead

  • Feeling SUPER empowered

    "Ali’s art and floral workshops were such a nice change from many of the virtual workshops out there. First off, it was so professionally executed and secondly I left the workshop feeling super empowered to explore the creative side I rarely let out. After the flower workshop I ended up buying flower shears and now visit the grocery store weekly to create new arrangements. I used to be so intimidated by floral arranging and feel so much more prepared and excited to arrange and gift flowers. I also love how Ali intermixes history within the workshop making it super educational as we learn and create."

    Emily Merrell, Community Curator & Business Coach, Six Degrees Society

  • Confident to mix and match flowers

    "Before Ali's grocery store flower arranging class, I'd spent my life buying random bunches of flowers, trimming the tips and popping them into a vase. And feeling like I'd wish I'd known how to make them look better. After her class, I now feel totally confident to mix and match flowers at the store, get a little adventurous with different types and styles, and know exactly how to arrange them to look professionally put together. Why didn't I have this fun and useful skill sooner?!" 

    — Sally Rogers, Founder of Parsnip
