Teri Farrell Gittins

Where it All Began

Teri started her art career with a BA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design. She now has over 30 years of experience creating art for several types of companies. In addition to creating beautiful paintings and surface art for products like fabrics, paper, and home decor, she also co-manages and teaches creative classes for her family sewing and home care retail shop.


Shoots And Blooms Brand

Teri’s inspired by beautiful florals and how they follow our journey through life.  If you pay attention, flowers move through life with us.  Sometimes they are subtly in the background of our lives like when we walk by a garden. Other times they are bold and bright in the forefront of our passions or our loss. Celebrating the start of life at baby showers, gracing our special occasions and traditions, and respectfully adding beauty and peace to the end of life at our memorials or resting places.  Florals remind us of how life can be strong and fragile all at the same time.  Life shoots and blooms from one adventure to the next!

At Home Artist

Being an artist with a studio at home, makes Teri somewhat of a homebody. As a result, it is important for her space to be beautiful, elegant, and peaceful.  She tries to create work that she would love having and seeing in her own home.  In addition to beautiful florals she loves childhood traditions, simple graphics and patterns.
