Artist Contact Info:
Susie Margolin is a life-long gardener who launched the sustainable floral design business Lotus &Lettuce to share her love of locally-grown flowers and vintage décor as an artistic response to climate change.

Susie’s designs feature organic blooms that she grows from seed in her Auburndale gardens, arranged in vintage vessels for sustainable beauty. Her “floral sculptures” incorporate bold colors, unusual textures and shapes, as well as vegetables and foraged natural elements. Between April and October, she creates custom designs for clients and events and teaches floral design workshops. Her goal as a designer is to promote creativity, sustainability, and community through “seed to vase” floral design.

An image of Susie’s work is currently featured in Newton’s FenceART project, which is rotating among different outdoor public locations in the city. She is also a Certified Master Gardener.

This is Susie’s first year participating in Newton’s Open Studios. She will be showcasing floral sculptures brimming with specialty spring blooms.
