the force behind florabeane

Amity Beane describes herself as a teacher, a farmer, an artist, and a friend. When not working with the gifted and talented students in her tiny western Maine district, she can be found on her fifty-acre farm tending to cut flowers, making paper flower orders, and chasing her baby. Amity teaches online video courses, does live workshops, and also is the photographer responsible for all of the work found on her website. Her work has been on display at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay and Calderwood Hall on North Haven Island, Maine. Amity also runs a Patreon feed with botanical deconstructions, live demonstrations, and mentor and makers meetings for paper florists. She is also an administrator of the online paper florist group The Paper Florists.
