The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges. Boulder, Colo.-based Stephanie Redlinger, 39, a former graphic designer who launched her paper botanical atelier, the Florasmith, in San Francisco in 2015, considers her flowers and the mushrooms she has perfected, made primarily from crepe paper embellished with materials like sand, “as botanical portrait or homage” — realistic but with an emphasis on each creation’s essential quirks, such as a poppy’s wrinkles. The paper artist Zoe Bradley, 47, whose studio is in Cowbridge, near Cardiff, Wales, takes a more abstract, performative approach to her flowers. She began her career at the fashion house Alexander McQueen, where she built wooden legs and fan-shaped corsets for one of the designer’s elaborate runway shows, and her psychedelic-meets-origami blossoms, which she creates from stiff metallic paper, have been displayed in the windows of London stores including Liberty and Harrods.And then there’s Tiffanie Turner, based in Fairfax, Calif., who is widely acknowledged as the progenitor and doyenne of the new generation of paper-flower makers, teaching popular workshops on the subject. She shows her work in galleries and museums, like the a... Sep 7, 2020
Deryn Davidson: Award for demonstration garden is a bright spot during tough times - The Daily Camera
By Deryn DavidsonBy all accounts, these are trying times. So last week when the CSU Extension Boulder County Demonstration Garden received a Plant Select Showcase Garden Award, it felt extra-sweet. The Plant Select program is a collaboration between Colorado State University, Denver Botanic Gardens and professional horticulturists. Their goal is to “create smart plant choices for a new American Landscape inspired by the Rocky Mountain Region.” The plants are trialed and chosen based on eight attributes: flourishing with less water, habitat-friendly, tough and resilient in challenging climates, one of a kind/unique, resist disease and insects, long-lasting beauty, and noninvasive. These are all important qualities in plants that we invite into our spaces.
Our demonstration garden at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont is one of several such gardens across the state. You can glean a good amount of information from plant tags and online research, but it is helpful to see with your own eyes how plants perform after establishment or to see plant combinations growing side by...

Shop Paulina Buckley's Wild and Whimsical Floral Creations - 5280 | The Denver Magazine
When I first moved to Denver, I was freelancing with a bunch of different florists in the Denver area, and then I worked at Fiori Flowers in Boulder. I loved that shop, but I knew that I wanted to make my own name, and I ended up getting a really great opportunity with Leevers Locavore, which is a grocery store in the Highland [neighborhood] that just opened up in November. I started doing flowers for them and I still sell flowers out of their space.

With COVID-19, I initially wanted to do more online deliveries, and they picked up pretty quickly. Then the property managers of Larimer Square reached out to me. They wanted to do something different and have some smaller businesses do pop-ups for a short amount of time. The opportunity came mid-June, and they said they wanted me to start my lease July 1. We were able to pull it all together, with big help from our friends and family. It was an actual village of people who helped us to get this to flourish.
How would you describe your floral-design style?My style is a little bit more whimsical and bold, more exotic and risky, more untraditional. I really love using the natural elements [native to] wherever I am. Even if I’m walking down my block and I see a tumbleweed, I’ll pick that up and somehow design with it. I’m very resourceful; I love experimenting and making things that are really funky looking and fun.
Even tumbleweed?Weeds do not discourage me at all. I love the overgrown grasses that grow behind the dumpster. Honestly, the flowers in my apartment are things I find growing out of the cracks of the pavement. I’m always looking for those odd grasses growing in strange places. I think there’s beauty in all of that.
Tell us about your shop.If you were to come to my home, this is what my home looks like. When you walk into the shop, it feels very comforting. It smells like amazing flowers, and we burn candles from a local candlemaker, Wooly Wax. Our plants are eye-catching. They’re very exotic and obscure, not what you would expect to see at a typical plant store. At the same time, we lean toward plants that aren’t extremely difficult to take care of. We carry a lot of cactus, succulents, orchids, and a variety of aloes and ferns. We offer people refreshments when they come in—we have coffee, wine, champagne, water—and we have a table outside with four seats and people can just hang out.
Amidst the tangle of foliage, shoppers will discover unexpected treasures, including artwork by Denver-based Fernanda Durmer. Photo courtesy of Buckley House of Flowers

Figures, Flowers And Fire - South Pasadena Review
But after she studied at University of Colorado-Boulder, Sobieski started taking evening art classes in the summer, and that’s when things began to click.
“I just felt like it was my calling,” the 48-year-old South Pas resident told the Review recently from her combination home and studio on Grand Avenue, where’s she been busy preparing for a May 17 exhibition of her work at Plan:d Gallery in the Frogtown area of L.A. It will be her first solo show in 10 years.
“I didn’t know that regular people could be artists,’’ she recalled, “but I began to realize that it actually might be a possibility.”
After leaving Boulder to attend The Art Institute of Chicago, Sobieski later transferred to ArtCenter in Pasadena, where she studied illustration. She received her BFA in illustration in 1995, got married and went to work at Disney Interactive. It was during this time that she discovered her passion for figure painting.
“While I was at Disney, I was doing art work on a computer, which I realized wasn’t for me,” Sobieski said. “Then I started to build a figure-painting portfolio and work with models in my garage. I have always loved working from the figure — it is incredibly challenging and deeply personal. My most favorite paintings growing up were figurative. I loved Toulouse-Lautrec, Egon Schiele, John Singer Sargent and Manet.”
Sobieski presented her work to the Sarah Bane Gallery in Fullerton, quit her job and showed for the next 10 years at the gallery, where she sold more than 100 of her paintings. She remained there until 2009, then returned to school to earn an MFA in painting from Claremont Graduate University.
“After that, my work shifted into being curated for group shows,” Sobie... Jan 4, 2020

Long’s Gardens seeking conservation easement to preserve 25-acre Boulder property’s agricultural use - Boulder Daily Camera
Backers of a renewed, collaborative effort to convince Boulder to purchase a conservation easement to protect Long’s Gardens from development are hoping for an agreement by the end of the year.The Long family approached the city 13 years ago about preserving the 25-acre urban farm on north Broadway, where the Long family has grown bulbs and flowers for more than a century. The Long family also leases some of the land to community-run Growing Gardens and the nonprofit Mountain Flower Goat Dairy.
All three are part of the conservation easement effort, along with The Conservation Fund and a group of neighbors.
Amanda Bickel, a neighborhood supporter, said the property should be protected because it’s the last parcel of working farmland in the city. The city, she said, has benefited for decades from the Long family’s decision to maintain the farm and invite public uses.
“The Long family has been extraordinarily generous thus far to the people of the city, and it’s not reasonable for the city to assume these benefits can continue forever withou...
