Constance Lael Linyard is a cum laude graduate of Queens College in Charlotte NC with a BA degree in Fine Art. She is an accomplished artist whose work has been published by Bentley House Fine Art of Walnut Creek, CA since 1995. Her love of flowers, beautifully landscaped gardens and architecture eventually led her to a more hands on approach with nature. Constance's attention to detail, sense of style and passion for her work are the basis for her design approach. Using her discriminating eye for design, her goal is to share with others what she does best. By embracing the beauty of color, textures and other design elements, Constance finds great pleasure when creating aesthetically appealing botanical designs. In so doing she can contribute to helping others bring warmth, elegance and a touch of nature into their homes.

Constance sold her floral designs for many years at the Black Lion stores in Cornelius and Pineville NC. She has also done floral design work for Tree Master in Newton, NC. She is presently designing botanicals exclusively for The Uttermost Company in Rocky Mount, VA. The introduction of their new line of permanent botanicals debuted at the High Point Market in October 2008.
