This studio has been, in every sense, a part of a bigger plan.
It all began after a long season of waiting with this idea that was on fire and would not be put out. After too much self doubt and dismissal, I decided to see if anyone else thought it was as crazy as I did. Paths quickly crossed with Bloom Kids Collection (business partners and cousins of mine) and after that every detail began to fall into place. The location, the financing, the name. Each aspect with its own impossible story of how it came to be.
I understand that this studio has put in a position that I can not take credit for all of the goodness that happens here. Yes, it's taken a lot of hard work, but this path has been intricately planned and woven by someone who knows much more about what they're doing than I do and I am so grateful He is in charge.
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
Flourish Studio & Classroom is a place for artists at all stages of development to learn and create art in a process-focused environment. Our mission is to enable our artists to grow in personal and artistic aspects by creating, rather than aspire to have a finished product all the same.
- Our studio values meaning in the process and purpose.
- We prioritize the needs of our community and those who are less fortunate.
- We strive to always be honest, understanding, empathetic and encouraging, and to create opportunity for all who enter to find their path to their best solution.
- Our goal is for this art studio to become a staple in the community and a platform to provide opportunity for programs that help people in need.
