Jennifer McGarigle grew up in Bodega Bay, California, surrounded by wildflowers and wilderness. After graduating from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA, she briefly worked in the fashion industry before establishing Floral Art. She quickly gained recognition for her exquisite designs and innovative sensibility. Inspired by architecture, fashion and interior design, Jennifer has developed a distinctive style that is fresh, fashion forward and immediately recognizable. Whether designing for individual clients, luxury brands or celebrities, she collaborates and translates their individual style into flowers and event décor.
In 2009, Jennifer launched Floral Art Home, which features collections of modern floral inspired home furnishings and accessories. With a passion for flowers, she infuses imagination and elegance into each piece, capturing the alluring beauty of blooms. Her furniture designs have been featured in Architectural Digest, O Magazine, Traditional Home, Better Homes and Gardens among many more with international recognition. In 2012, her "Floral Lace Chair" was included among Apartment Therapy's 2012 Design Showcase, which featured thirty of the best new creations for the home.

She has also consulted for large hotel chains and corporations such as the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas on floral design. In 2015, Jennifer was invited to Tokyo, Japan to create a solo exhibit of fresh floral Installations which was presented to the public as well as Japanese industry leaders.
In 2010, by popular demand, Jennifer began teaching monthly design classes that highlight how to make floral arrangements that tie into design trends of today. Along with DIY entertaining tips, the classes are designed to be fun, instructional and inspirational.
