Barbara comes to the Floral Business with a multitude of life experiences in many industries. She started in the fine jewelry industry in high school and helped open and work with her parents in their family shop, LL Brown Jewelers of 30 years in San Francisco's Embarcadero Center. She has a knack for jewelry design and creating beautiful jewelry while spreading happiness. When married and living with her former husband and 2 son's in Tiburon, Barbara bought and sold real estate, remodeling each home and building her own home from the bottom up with a love of residential design. She has always been an artist at heart, although drawing a straight line or painting a picture is not in her wheelhouse. Working 3 dimensionally with glass fusing, mannequins, mosaics/ tiles, and flowers from an art and design aspect have always been her passion. Her other passions in life include community service/giving, laughing as much as possible (when appropriate...) poker playing and poker dealing. Barbara has dealt the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas for six years...just another fun, exciting and unusual profession for a suburban Marinite. Hence, "The Queen of Arts and Flowers" Flowers and their beauty are her focus at this point in her life. Creating and helping to bring beauty, joy and love to the recipients for every occasion. She looks forward to speaking and meeting all those that will touch her life in her new venture and to reciprocate by creating beauty to touch theirs and their loved ones.
