This year I was given the opportunity to visit Nixon in San Francisco for the DeYoung Museum's annual fundraising event, Bouquets to Art. What a treat!
Nixon and Alice Van Fleet (his co-exhibitor) had a difficult piece of artwork to use as inspiration, but they managed to interpret it as a three dimensional floral piece.
With over 150 exhibitors from the Bay Area, the event is a little overwhelming, but very inspiring. There is such a variety of creativity that happens when Western flower arranging, floral design and ikebana meet.
Thank you again to Nixon for the invitation; if you ever find yourself in San Francisco in the first few weeks of March stick around for a beautiful presentation.
