Owner Evelyn Frolking’s home-based floral design studio is located in the heart of historic Granville, Ohio. What makes Studio Artiflora special?
About the Home Studio
Studio Artiflora is a premiere design studio located in lovely historic Granville, Ohio, home of Denison University.
Evelyn established the studio in 2003 and is the principal designer. Along with her husband, Tod, she lives in an 1890’s Granville village farmhouse on six acres with an array of dogs, cats and chickens.
The studio (and often the front porch) is likely to be full of unique natural materials like wood, moss, and stone, much coming from her six-acre property and surrounding woods, materials that offer the structures for presenting flowers.
After living and teaching in Maastricht, the Netherlands, as a Fulbrighter, Evelyn later returned to the land of flowers to study Dutch floral art where she graduated from the Boerma Institute of Dutch Floral Design.
Evelyn studied this past summer in Bad Neuenahr, Germany, where for the second time, she completed a master class with world class designer Gregor Lersch. Evelyn returns to Europe periodically for advanced training, and has studied at Boerma and around Europe with floral master designers Gregor Lersch, Pim van den Akker, Bauduoin Roelants, David Ragg, and David Denyer. This year she travels to Scotland where Harianto Setiawan, International Designer of the Year 2016, will travel from his home in Singapore to conduct a master class for international designers.
Evelyn is a member of the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce, where she was past president and of AmSpirit Business Connections. She designs the florals for the Granville Inn and other establishments in the area.
What Makes Artiflora Special?
Using knowledge, experience and the inspiration of European floral design, Studio Artiflora is where flowers become art.
Artiflora’s signature work is the European style hand-tied bouquet, a vase-ready artistically designed gathering of beautiful blooms, buds and leaves. Evelyn’s creative designs often feature natural materials like branches, stones, moss and berries, used for structures that support beautiful flowers.
Exquisite pieces will remain beautiful for many, many days through Artiflora’s care and handling of delicate blooms that have been carefully selected and conditioned.
