ABOUT THE ARTIST
Katie Davis is an internationally acclaimed floral artist based in Salem, Oregon, the heart of the Willamette Valley. Since founding Ponderosa & Thyme in 2011, Katie has become known for her textural designs inspired by nature. Her floral designs use the most luxurious and beautiful flowers available while incorporating locally foraged, unique, and sensory plants into each arrangement. The result is a visually breathtaking experience.
Katie’s design aesthetic could be best described as playful, romantic, herb-y, and fragrant. In addition to creating florals for intimate weddings, Katie and her team host incredible workshops worldwide open to florists and artists to explore the creative process. Ponderosa & Thyme continues to offer wedding and event services, specializing in intimate and heartfelt experiences.
With a heart for education, Katie has been teaching floral design since 2014, serving clients across the globe. Flowers are a language of their own, and while teaching in English, Katie is able to cross cultures with her thoughtful and emotional approach. Just as comfortable teaching the floral basics as she is pushing experienced professionals to expand their creative boundaries, Katie loves to help people grow, discover, and connect.
