Updated: Mar 29, 2019
Greenleaf proudly welcomes Shawn Michael Foley as our new Corporate Marketing: Wedding & Events Coordinator.
While studying vocal performance in college, Shawn Michael Foley, AIFD, PFCI, had a change of heart. He saw a want ad in the newspaper for a floral designer, applied on a whim, got the job and quickly caught the “flower bug.” He attended as many
conventions and classes as he could afford, and in 2011 started his own business, Design Lab Botanicals in Wausau, Wisconsin, where he
experimented with mechanics and techniques to develop his own style. Hungry for large-scale artistic projects, Foley launched the Human Form Project in 2012. This annual series of photographs highlights the beauty of the human body with grand botanical accessories and has appeared in several European magazines, including Flowers World and Blomster.Along the way, he crossed paths with crew members of HotHouse Design Studio in Birmingham, Alabama, who persuaded him to join their team as a lead wedding designer. His passion for education and creativity landed him the coveted title of Mayesh Design Star in 2016. Foley brings his own creative spark to the industry along with eagerness to educate and share his techniques for weddings, body flowers and floral artistry.
