Meet the Team!
Amanda Burnette, owner + lead designer
My name is Amanda, and I'm lead flower brain around these parts. My whole life I've been really into creative pursuits- from hot gluing random household objects together as a kid to now building a business around playing with colors and textures and assorted flora. In 2012, I married Jordan, a total fox, and together we have two pugs- Ollie and Miri. In the past two years, we've grown to fancy ourselves gardeners, (#burnettefarms) where my goal to grow interesting flower varieties in colors that are hard for me to find elsewhere. My mother-in-law said there is no such thing as a plant hoarder- only gardeners, so I'm running with that.
I'm really into baking pies, snuggling my dogs, and binge watching mindless shows. I'm really good at painting my own nails + have an affinity for tragically expensive candles and vegan ice-cream.
Meredith Hill, design assistant
Hey there, I'm Meredith! Aside from flowering alongside Amanda, I'm an artist and designer, owning and running my own artwork business; Lightbox Print Co., with my husband James. We create screen printed pieces of art of things we love (as most artists do) based off our own photographs and illustrations. Recently we've been making prints of all sorts of different flowers (hello creative worlds colliding!). I've always been a creator at heart, and see floral design as its own unique art form - one that's super fun and fulfilling for me to be a part of while helping Amanda with such gorgeous creations.
When I'm not making pieces of (print and floral) art, I'm probably in our kitchen, making pieces of culinary art. J/K, but really... I'm a sucker for anything Thai related, extremely spicy, or just a good old fashioned taco. I also love to travel and explore new places, landscapes, cuisines and cultures. I'm a Virginia Tech Hokie and do in fact, bleed orange and maroon, and I hope to one day soon also have my own dog babies to snuggle.
