Studio Artiflora was established in 2004 after owner Evelyn Frolking, returned to her home in Granville, Ohio, from residence and formal floral study in the Netherlands. She has worked with many international floral masters since then to create her own signature style. Like the industrial food market, seasonless foods, chemical additives, and heavy transportaion footprints has come to rule the floral industry as well. Her book, Homegrown: Stories from the Farm, published in 2012, highlights the growing popularity of fresh food grown by local farmers, and she has watched with pleasure at the growing local food movement. She now turns her attention to the floral industry, burdened with the same issues, and is comitted to sourcing local flowes and practicing and talking about sustainable methods of floral design.
