April is flower month, so we could think of no better person to be our “Artist in Focus” than Gettysburg resident Rebecca Muller.
Muller got her start in floral art and design some 11 years ago when she began cultivating flowers while working on a farm. Since then, she’s grown her skills into a company called LOCAFLORA Design, which creates 3D flower installations from local, sustainably sourced flowers.
“In many ways, I believe flowers can be a platform for empathy in the community, and I consider floral installations to be one of the greatest ways for people to share an artistic experience,” she said.
When Muller is not creating flower art, she can be found at the Foundry Makerspace in StartUp Harrisburg and at Waldo’s & Company, a Gettysburg-based arts nonprofit, where she’s director of operations.
