Designer of Distinction: Ashley Woodson Bailey

Join acclaimed floral designer, photographer, and artist, Ashley Woodson Bailey for the 2021 Designer of Distinction at the Garden Club of Jacksonville. During this program, Ashley will create several original floral designs, then photograph them and describe 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, Ashley channeled her love of flowers into a healing new venture filled with beauty, depth, and exquisite curiosity. A self-taught photographer, Ashley’s 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.

This program will be offered in-person at the Garden Club. Seating at the Garden Club is very limited, so purchase your ticket today. COVID-19 health and safety guidelines will be practiced during this event. Seating in the Ballroom will be socially distanced, and attendees must wear masks throughout the entire program.
