about alison

Hello! I'm so glad you're here...

I'm Alison, owner and floral artist for Solstice Floral Studio. I have been designing flowers for the last 19 years. Although I started as a graphic designer, a job in a floral shop changed the whole path of my life. I was fascinated with all the colors, shapes, petal formations and amazing textures of everything I saw. I soon realized floral design was my passion. I finished my degree at KU, always with the intent of opening my own studio someday. That formal education in visual communication directly translated to the way I compose my floral art, and gives me a unique perspective.  I approach each arrangement as a piece of artwork, combining flowers and textures to create the perfect composition. I enjoy collaborating with couples and curating textured, artful florals that tell the unique story of their love.

Hello! I'm Violet...

Violet is the official mascot of Solstice Floral Studio. Named after a flower by her flower obsessed Mom. Always hanging around ready for a snuggle and quietly supporting Alison as she creates.  Occasionally getting kicked out of the studio for chewing on the random stem or flower discarded on the floor.
