BloomNet® Artisan Spotlight: Patti Fowler

Floral Arrangement by Patti Fowler

When local florist Patti Fowler studied plant science in college, she didn’t plan on a career in floral design. But her passion for flowers and plants — fueled by training in the principles and elements of floral design — changed her career path. “Floral design actually found me more than me finding floral design,” Patti says.

Her love of flowers and plants led her to the wholesale floral industry in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Then it took her to Southern California and what she calls “the grower side” of the business. But 16 years ago, drawn back to her roots, she became the owner of Flowerama of America in Pittsburgh’s suburban North Hills area.
