My name is Karin Wilkinson, and I am one of those fortunate individuals who loves what I do for a living. Vintage Vines Fine Florals is not only my work...it's my passion.
I have been very fortunate over the years to have worked and learned from some of the best designers in the world. I'm a mult-award winning "Master Floral Designer" with a degree in Commercial Art. I feel that my art background and my love of flowers have been the biggest influence for all my acheivements thus far
In 2000, I worked in Hong Kong as a designer for "Creative Designs." The company's showroom is located in Hong Kong, but I traveled to many factories in China where I designed home and garden accessories and holiday items.
Many of my designs were purchased by large retail stores and outlets.
My daughter Jessica Wilkinson, works with in store sales and customer care.
