My name is Caris Roller
Catholic wife, mother, artist
I am a graduate of Indiana University, Herron School of Art with a BA in Fine Arts.
I became interested in flowers as a medium for my artistic endeavors when my priest asked me if I could make fresh arrangements for our altar every week. I was intrigued by this idea of using flowers as an art form and way of prayer and devotion. Since that day I have worked as the decorator and florist for Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.
I find great peace as I create the flowers for weddings, feast days and all liturgical celebrations. One of things I love to do is pray the Rosary while I work with the flowers. I especially enjoy praying the Rosary while I create the bridal bouquet. My intention is always for the happy couple, as I weave the bride's special heirloom rosary into its petals.
As an artist, florist and decorator my favorite quote is by Elsie de Wolfe...
“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful ..... that will be my life.”
-Elsie de Wolfe
