Natasha Lisitsa, owner and lead designer of Waterlily Pond Studio and author of Exuberant Floral Design has been named "one of the most exciting and daring floral designers in America."
Internationally recognized for her larger-than-life floral art installations, vivacious design style and innovative use of materials, Natasha believes beauty is often found in the unconventional and understands the importance of stretching the possibilities of our imagination.
Through a distinct point of view, influenced by her study of Japanese ikebana floral design, interest in art and architecture, and passion for unusual, expressive flowers, Natasha does not work in just one genre. She always challenges herself to create pieces that are truly a reflection of your style. The result could be ultra modern, or Asian fusion, or garden lush. The possibilities are endless. Natasha will entice us all to embrace our floral curiosity, be a little mischievous and break the rules.
for any floral enthusiast or designer, an art lover or anyone who
enjoys flowers and design, don't miss the Lauritzen Gardens Guild's
annual kickoff to spring.
Please call Chantel at (402) 346-4002, ext. 211 for more information.
