An artist with a flair for drama and old school romance, whose mediums range from flowers to film to fashion, Becky Roberts is a tour de force.
Her process is emotive, whereby the tangible design is felt out, rather than derivative, considering the event’s idea or concept and then meticulously bringing that to life. Becky utilizes color and texture to create a response in the viewer, her work is not the pretty background to an event, but rather so intimately entwined with the purpose of the event- It is almost as if it were the reason to be.
Becky uses flowers and natural items because they are a multi-sensory tool to engage the viewer in the piece. In her own words, “Flowers draw people in, scents can trigger memories, an emotional reaction is at the surface… Flowers can make someone’s happiest day more magical, or the worst day a little better.”
Becky was born in Chico, CA and raised in Northern California. She graduated from San Francisco State University in 2009 with a BA in Film Studies. After moving to LA, she found more opportunity in floral design than film, and quickly found a market for her talents. She started her own company, The Poppy Studio, with a partner, and became a well-known and desired designer for celebrity clientele and prominent design companies. It was directly because of this hustle and bustle and commercial onslaught that she decided to move to Bozeman with her family.
