About the Artist: Paige Buursma
Affinity Floral Arts began in 2016 when I started experimenting with dried flowers and epoxy resin. I opened an Etsy shop, just for something to do with all the things I made, and it quickly turned into my main occupatio. Then I took a metalworking course to expand my skills, and I fell in love with metal! Especially silver. From that point on I began self-teaching in earnest, using every resource I could find and building my skills through experimentation and practice. I don't always use real flowers these days, but almost everything I make has a botanical thread running through it.
I have only ever wanted to work with my hands for a living, and this trade brings me a lot of joy. When I'm not working in my studio or my garden, you can find me playing with my toddler, tending to my houseplants, and drinking endless cups of chai. I'm also a classical violinist! I got my bachelor's degree in music performance and I have played in various symphonies throughout the Pacific Northwest and Southern California.
