About the Artist
Although some would believe Victoria’s flower pressing passion started after her own wedding; in fact, she developed a love from pressing flowers when she was a little girl. She carried around a tiny flower presser, and as she stumbled across flowers she loved, she would press them in hopes they would live on forever.
Naturally, after her own wedding, that passion quickly came back to life. As luck would have it, Victoria and her husband had one week between their wedding day and their honeymoon; so she started brainstorming. She pressed her bouquet (not knowing the outcome), and took the rest of the flowers to the nearest nursing home in hopes to brighten their day. Once they returned from their honeymoon, Victoria turned her flowers into art and decided brides needed this opportunity to cherish their flowers as well.
She took the next year learning everything she could about pressing flowers. With wedding flowers being so particular, if not pressed correctly they will turn brown or completely different colors. But, after much experimenting and perfecting the pressing process, Floral Impressions took flight in March of 2018.
Victoria says, “Although flowers are worth every penny, it can get expensive. I wanted to create floral art in a more modern way that not only saves the flowers, but in fact reminds us of the milestone events of life whether that is cherishing flowers to remember the day you said “I do,” a time where you are honoring a passed loved one, or celebrating special occasions like the birth of a child or a special anniversary. This business is special to me because it gives honor to every season of your life and in some way helps memories live on forever. So in a way my childhood dream became a reality.”
