Oh hello, nice to meet you! My name is Mikaelee, and I'm the face behind Flourish! A lover of all things beautiful, I have a special spot in my heart for weddings! My biggest passion is creating beautiful details that add to the story that your wedding communicates.
Having studied Fine Art and History in university, my love of beauty, quality, and design made calligraphy a natural fit. I began to learn calligraphy at a very young age when I came across an old set of calligraphy pens in my mother's desk. Over time, I taught myself the art of lettering, and my style has evolved to a contemporary organic approach as I've grown into it over the last 15 years.
Nature has always been a part of my life- from being outside exploring, reading books from up in a tree, travelling across Europe, and working on a tree farm and at a local flower shop. Much to my husband's chagrin, there always seems to be flowers in our home and I love to include wild and natural elements in all of my work.
Having lived in Europe, my aesthetic is inspired by classic European forms, nature, and organic colour palettes. I have an eye for quality and beauty, and seek to use the finest products to create carefully curated art. I work with each client to create an authentic experience that reflects their personal story and heart.

"I purchased wedding invitations from Flourish Artistic Design and could not have been happier. So much thought and care was put in to creating an invite that set the tone for my dream wedding. I had originally come to Flourish with an idea in mind, and after discussing my wedding and my vision, Mikaelee created something for me that was 1000 times better than I had imagined. If I could go back, I would order these again every single time. My only regret is not being able to order all of my printed material from them".
