Jillian Player
My interest in flowers was originally informed by painting. Incorporating nature has always influenced my work, whether in painting, drawing, installation, or video. My curiosity about floral design started when I helped a friend who is a wedding florist that owns her own flower farm. From planting hundreds of dahlia bulbs, to harvesting willow, taking those raw materials and creating beautiful design hooked me. I am now a full-time floral designer, and my art practice is flooded with the floral world. I am a Vancouver Island School of Art alumni, completing the diploma program, as well as the Independent Studio Program (2009/10), where my focus was painting and installation. I have exhibited my work in BC and Washington State.
