I am Tracey Flanigan- mom to two amazing sons who were both raised in Brighton, MI, an artist/art educator, a floral designer and owner of Art In Bloom.
In the summer of 2010, I merged my passion for floral design and my absolute love of fine art into a business I aptly named, Art In Bloom. With over fifteen years of experience in the floral industry, a fine arts degree, and a background in art education with Brighton Area Schools, I wanted to formulate a floral business that would reflect my skills and talents, as well as give me a creative outlet. A location on Main St. in downtown Brighton has been the perfect fit.
Art In Bloom is a full service floral studio servicing the Livingston County area. As a resident of the county myself, I love that many of my customers are friends, neighbors, former teaching colleagues and particularly, former students. It’s so much fun to recognize the faces of the many, many students from my twelve years of teaching when they enter the studio. It is especially inspiring to be able to design wedding work for a bride who knew me as her elementary school art teacher!
I feel compelled to source American grown flowers and use local resources whenever possible. My home garden will also serve as inspiration as I begin to create some cutting gardens in the spring of 2017.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this page and I hope to talk with you soon- on the phone or in the studio!
