Inspiration Series - Ian Prosser & Zoë Gallina of Botanica


am often asked how I fight through creative block and what inspires me. So, here is an installment of my Inspiration Series.

I've found that sometimes to break out of a NON-creative funk, it's best I go look at some work of other artists I admire. Being a traditional artist as well, It's fun for me to see what other artists use as their outlet, although I paint, and sketch my primary outlet for my art is through graphics, type and paper.  Sometimes to see how other creative minds put out their ideas, and the creations they create will jostle my own creative juices. All photography images courtesy of Botanica.

Featured in this installement are the unsurpassed talents of Owner Ian Prosser & Creative Director Zoë Gallina. Lose yourself below and be captivated by the Beauty that is Botanica!!

Highly coveted and acclaimed, Ian Prosser is a floral phenomenon having created an array of masterpieces for the likes of Queen Elizabeth, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Donna Summer, Dan Wheldon, & Kirstie Alley.  Yes, we are "dropping names" here... with this repertoire who wouldn't?!  Not to mention his work in the presidential inauguration of President Bill Clinton & his role as "Floral Design Chair" for the inaugurations of President George W. Bush.

However accomplished and with over 30 years experience, Ian still remains personally connected, approaching each creative opportunity with explicit care and inspired artistry.  Having seen his work first hand, it is simply BREATHTAKING.  A leader and mentor in the industry, a worldwide award winning inspiration to be sought after, Mr. Ian Prosser.

A perfect complement to the ambitious Prosser, let us also introduce Zoë Gallina the decorated Creative Director of Botanica.  With unrelenting creativity and a passion for "the feel of the flower", Gallina has gone on to support and uphold the exceptional reputations of this unmatched design studio.  Winning floral awards as early as age 8 and having been featured in various publications throughout her professional career, she is a blooming talent who is continued to be watched and respected by all in the industry.  Not to mention, she is simply a DOLL!

Special thanks to all the creative minds at Botanica for sharing their artistic expression!
