It's mid-September, which means one thing in our world ... it is time to announce our newest Mayesh Design Star! My team got together to figure out how we are going to shake things up and this time we decided that we were going to observe & select. Meaning, we were paying attention to designers who are active in our community using social media - posts, blogs, live videos, etc. In other words, we did a bit of cyber-stalking. Our method is a bit unconventional, but we are so excited to be working with this designer.
I am pleased to announce that our 2019 Mayesh Design Star is Shean Strong! He is incredibly talented, has a passion for education, and embodies charming charisma that you will get to experience through his videos and workshops.
As usual, we have big plans and are crazy excited about collaborating with Shean. Be sure to stay tuned as we will be announcing our 2019 flower workshop tour plan very soon!
We made our first official announcement live on today's Mornings with Mayesh. So I edited it down to just the part with his interview. Get to know Shean better by watching the video reply here and share your thoughts in the comments below:
- Tell us a little bit about yourself and background, and how you found yourself as a floral designer?
- What is it about teaching & education that you love so much / are so passionate about?
- What are you most excited about for the next year as our Mayesh Design Star?
- Without giving too much away, can you talk a little bit about what you hope our future workshop attendees will gain and take away from your classes?
- If you could be any flower, which one would you be and why?
- Now just tell us something fun about yourself, unrelated to flowers!
