The Artists
Teressa Johnson

Teressa Johnson is a floral, event, and lifestyle designer. She is intrigued by learning the inspirations of her clients, flower related or not, and translating that into elements of thoughtful design to reflect them well. Whether it’s in parties, weddings, boutique businesses, content creation, workshops, or interiors, her passion is to build relationships, earn trust, and deliver in a collaborative way to the party-throwing, purpose-living, flower-loving, warm-hugging people.
In a phrase, her aesthetic is ushering into thoughtful arrangement that which grows wild and free.

Creativity, imagination, and making things with her hands are the common threads in her life from childhood. Aside from flowering and gardening, her biggest hobby is studying, making, and eating food.

Her heart is for Jesus, marriage, and the daily, thankless, incredible and much longed for privilege of building up her children; stone upon stone upon stone.

Sarah Simon is the Artist and Author  at TheMintGardener. Finding inspiration in the ever-blooming variety of textures and colors in her Seattle-based urban farm, Sarah creates and teaches lush Watercolors inspired by the diverse variety of herbs, flowers, and trees grown in her garden. With a continually blooming following of botanical and art lovers alike, her teaching has received worldwide attention with her online painting courses in the International Watercolor Summit, her monthly live online teaching sessions and her three best-selling books with Penguin Random House. Sarah has taught thousands of people how to watercolor and with her teaching talents, has made it such an approachable and enjoyable art form, both for the experienced and novice alike.

kara mercer

Kara Mercer is a commercial photographer and art director based in Seattle,Washington. She specializes in developing content for design, travel, hospitality and lifestyle brands. Known for her use of light and her eye for creative direction, Kara believes every image should stand strongly on its own while also contributing a unique yet complementary voice when serving as part of a collection. Her work is influenced as much by minimalism and thought-provoking conversations as it is by contemporary studies in human psychology and the emotive, sometimes ethereal feel of romanticism. With these influences, she seamlessly combines playful narratives with a timeless aesthetic for commercial media campaigns (print and digital) and editorial work.
