In the summer of 2010, Tracey Flanigan merged her passion for nature and flowers and her absolute love of fine art into a full service floral business aptly named, Art In Bloom. With over twenty-five years of experience in the floral industry, a fine arts degree in drawing and painting and a background in art education with Brighton Area Schools, Tracey wanted to formulate a floral business that would reflect her skills and talents, as well as provide a unique concept for her clients. A location on Main Street in downtown Brighton has been the perfect fit. If you take a look at the “Art In Bloom” page of this site, you will see some of the art and flower pairings that Tracey offers year round from her studio.
Floristry is a part of the family and you can often find Tracey’s mom in the studio creating corsages and boutonnieres or assisting customers. In the 1980’s and 90’s, Bea Flanigan owned, Bea’s Flowers & Gifts in Plymouth Twsp, MI and Tracey learned the basics of floral design and business ownership while working with her mom and attending EMU.
Tracey is compelled to source American grown flowers and use local resources whenever possible. She is currently working with two local flower farms and also sources fresh materials from her own cutting gardens.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this page and we hope to talk with you soon- either on the phone or in the studio!
