Umlaut & Ampersand was launched in 2014 by Devon Danielle, a long time floral designer and visual artist.
Devon began her floral design career in Vancouver, British Columbia learning under some of Vancouver's most renowned florists. Coining her favorite style of design as florigami, she loves the manipulation of natural elements to make structural art forms. Throughout her career her floral design has evolved into a marriage of her love of the ultra-modern structural design and the wild, whimsical and organic designs of the most current trends. Flowers are such an amazing art medium full of the most unreal colors and textures--the artistic possibilities are endless. U&A was created as a space to allow for that free flowing creativity to be limitless.
Washington has an abundance of beautiful flora to work with and we choose ecologically responsible Washington state grown flowers whenever possible or American grown when local isn't an option. In the seasons where our selection is limited and we go beyond our borders we try to remain true to these ecologically responsible practices.
Devon works out of a private studio tucked in the woods in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle.
What's with the name Umlaut & Ampersand? It's just awesome, that's all.
