Greetings from Sarasota

The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota has the most incredible courtyard that's like a dreamy pink palace, and the Selby Botanical Garden has some of the rarest orchids I've ever seen. Two of my most favorite things—the color pink and orchids—idealistically represent Sarasota as my ultimate eye candy fantasyland.

Hello from Jacksonville

I was blessed to have grown up with a gorgeous, lush backyard that my parents meticulously took care of. Some of my first memories are of exploring it and enjoying the beautiful blue hydrangea and massive philodendron bushes in our backyard, which is what I chose to illustrate my home. My family's love for plants and nature got passed down to me, and for that, I'm so grateful.

Welcome to Miami

South Florida gives me tropical vibes like no other. My choices here were inspired by its striking native plants, palm trees everywhere you look, crystal clear blue water, Art Deco realness, pastel neon lights, and Gianni Versace-esque opulence.
