Wiggy Flowers, Catherine Conlin's brain child, began in a chicken coop in Bodega, California and grew into a large design studio in San Francisco where she inspired an entire generation of floral designers.  This high-end floral and event design studio produced an average of 42 events a year including weddings, symphony, opera and fundraisers. Her work was called "Revolutionary" by Florist Review Magazine and her designs have been featured in multiple glossy magazines and blogs from Martha Stewart WEDDINGS to Style Me Pretty. Her work has been internationally acclaimed. Although she no longer maintain a floral studio, Catherine is available for consultation and design classes.
