Emily Reid is a native Texan born with a true Gypsy spirit. Her love of music, travel, art, cuisine, language and flowers is nurtured in Austin, Texas, a city with creativity running through its streets. Her nomadic ways have taken her through sunflower fields in northern Spain, lavender farms in France and endless rows of tulips in Holland, ingraining in her a deep appreciation for nature. While pursuing her MA in Art History at Leiden University, Emily developed an affinity for Dutch still life painting which continues to influence her work as a florist. Assisting in weddings around the world including Bordeaux France, Rabat, Morocco, Reykjavik, Iceland and Riga, Latvia, she brings a colorful, storied background to Gypsy Floral, and encourages clients to bring out their culture and passions to make unique events.

This lead to Emily offering her a part time job where she began to learn all elements of Emily's floral artistry. She enjoyed the art so much that she requested to become the heart of Gypsy. Now as the Studio Assistant she prepares for events by scheduling designers, corresponding with clients and managing day of. She can be found riding her bike around Austin, eating tacos, making crafts, and shopping for more plant babies.
