Studio Two Three will provide bouquets of flowers to choose from, but feel feel to bring your favorite bloom, sprig or greenery.
HILLARY ZELL is Assistant Director at Studio Two Three. Hillary attended Columbia College Chicago for graphic design and fell in love with book arts and printmaking while earning her degree. She is a Richmond native that has rekindled her love for printmaking in Virginia and non-sub zero temperature winters. She spends too much money on her dog, Goose, and has big plans to maybe dye her hair pink. One of these days.
