High standards, a love for flowers, and current.
Daughter of a Texas Cattle Rancher, I grew up in a small town in the Texas Panhandle. I chose a practical route first in life and proceeded to make my mark with 18 years as a finance executive with Morgan Stanley. As my world expanded, so did my understanding that my true love was always based in the creative. Seeking a new path, I was ready to trade in the corporate life.
I said goodbye to my corporate position in the spring of 2006 and enrolled in the Jane Packer Flower School in London. There I learned the art of the European hand-tie, a difficult but highly effective floristry technique that uses the natural architecture of the flowers to create not only a beautiful but also durable and long-lasting bouquet. I returned with the motivation to bring back to the states something very different.
On October 1, 2006 I opened my studio, Suzanne Cummings Flowers with the goal of embracing the essence of my creativity.
In March 2016 I rebranded, redesigned, and relaunched SUZANNE CUMMINGS.
