WIFE is a botanical studio based in Brooklyn specializing in plant based artworks and custom arrangements. Artist and Creative Director, Sophie Parker, looks at the botanical world as a sculptural medium. Drawing from her background as a painter and visual artist, Parker merges the handmade with the organic. Her work aims to challenge classical notions of floral arranging by reimagining traditional forms and offering new modes of thinking about what is “natural.”

“I’m not so sure my main concern is making something beautiful. Flowers are already beautiful. My main rule might be to resist the seduction of a traditional vision of beauty, and instead search for something rare, or fierce, or funny, or sensual - something more natural.”

-Sophie Parker for Elle Italia
