Acclaimed floral designer, photographer, and artist, Ashley Woodson Bailey demonstrated her work at the Designer of Distinction program on May 13. Woodson Bailey created several original floral designs, then photographed them while describing the process she uses for creating the breathtaking patterns she applies to fabric, wallpaper, fine art prints, and products of all kinds.

After a harrowing car accident left her bed-ridden with a broken back and shattered spirit, Woodson Bailey channeled her love of flowers into a healing new venture filled with beauty, depth, and exquisite curiosity. A self-taught photographer, her signature “florography” art prints launched in 2014. Her eponymous brand naturally expanded to include wallpapers, fabrics, and limited-edition products as her desire to live among the flowers grew. Her inaugural collection “Dark” was inspired by the transition of the flower from blossom to fading stem and the deep desire to preserve this metamorphosis as a frozen moment in time.
