After training at The European Flower Design School in 1992 she opened The Wild Iris flower shop in 1994; the go-to Florist for Aspen Art Museum, Sally Harvey Art Gallery and mountaintop weddings. While she loved having her arrangments in homes of Arabian princes and movie stars, she was especially honored that her flower creations helped to celebrate births and birthdays, anniversaries and everyday occasions and dinner parties .

Ginnie has taught classes across the US since the good old days and is excited to share her knowledge and passion as a partner in Crocus Hill Studio.

Therese Sexe has been getting her hands dirty since she was a child weeding her mother’s quarter acre vegetable garden. A self described ne'er do well, her friends and customers know her better as a master of many trades. Therese finds herself in high demand for consulting in landscaping, designing container gardens and creating floral arrangements as well as catering and styling parties both big and small. She has spent at least 10,000 hours in the kitchen and has pies to prove it. Therese combines over 20 years of design experience, her degree in Art History and her love of travel to bring a wealth of knowledge to her latest business venture, Crocus Hill Studio.
