SOUTHERN GREEN by KELLY GREEN

About the artist:  I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and lived there until December of 1998 when I married a Michigander and moved to the Detroit metro area. I immediately missed the sunshine; but I also missed a certain aesthetic very popular in the South: indoor plants selected and beautifully displayed to provide unique focal points and act as accessories in the home. Initially I thought it must have something to do with the weather. I soon realized that indoor plants, with very simple care, did just as well here as in Florida.

Over the years, I bought tropical plants and succulents at various garden stores and scrounged around to find interesting containers.  When I stopped working three years ago, my hobby became something of a passion. I decided to start Southern Green to share the concept of "boutique" plants that will not only decorate your home, office, etc. but keep your spirits up through the long winter months, clean the air in your home and provide a new, artful way to express yourself.
