Madeleine Shelton is the owner and lead designer of Botanicamuse. Her passion for flowers and artwork began in childhood. Her earliest memories include playing in her mother's garden and filling up sketch books with wild ideas. She is a graduate of the University of San Francisco. After college, she began studies in floral design and horticulture at Cuyamaca College, learning principles of design (learn the rules so you can break the rules) and the different care and handling techniques for the many botanical varieties she includes in her work. In addition to Botanicamuse, Madeleine freelances for a bevy of talented designers and celebrity clients, often traveling to assist other designers. Botanicamuse is her latest wild idea and dream career. With the help of her imaginative team, Botanicamuse events dazzle with warmth and personality.
