LEAF & BLOSSOM
Detroit art shops love to see people blossom by promoting their work. Established in 2020 by artists, Maggie Mazzara, Lillian Li, and Victoria Li, the Leaf and Blossom was born out of a necessity to help fellow local artists in Detroit find a place to showcase and sell their work. The struggle for survival is real for artists that had to shut down their shows due to the pandemic. Shop their site HERE to peruse their own work as well as their talented artists. We are proud to be a part of this community and are excited to work alongside 12 uniquely talented artists. Maggie works in sculpture and glasswork, Victoria has designed high-end tea blends themed after Dungeons and Dragons, and Lillian specializes in painting and restoration.
