ABOUT THE OWNER
Gaige Clark, #TheFlowerMaster, is the founder and Creative Director of Spruce, one of New York City, and Los Angeles’s most highly acclaimed and awarded flower boutiques. Since opening Spruce on Greenwich Avenue in NYC in 1998, Clark's designs have appeared in movies, TV shows, music videos, and commercials. Gaige has been featured in over thirty national and ten international publications. Her designs and integrity have also attracted an exclusive list of celebrities, socialites, politicians, and royalty from around the globe.
Clark’s visionary brand of floral design, coined “New England Garden,” arose from her family settling in Massachusetts over 367 years ago where in the 1940's Clark’s great-great-grandmother Marion Leary founded the now closed Hudson Gladiola Farm.
Clark has taken the family tradition and has grown Spruce opening her third store on Sunset and Fountain in Los Angeles in 2012. She has grown the brand and developed a new line of plant based Botanical Products and a new style of flower art called The Plantsuit where she designs an entire suit of wear out of plants and flowers.
After moving to Los Angeles, Gaige has been very active in her Silverlake community as a business owner, a member of The Micheltorena Community Garden, a volunteer teacher at Woodcraft Rangers, an afterschool arts program for minority inner city students.
In her spare time Gaige loves being with her new Nieces and Nephews and family members back in Massachusetts. She performs as a memoir storyteller with the New York based TMI Project. Clark currently lives in The Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles with her two rescue dogs, Blue and Ruthie.
From it's beginning in 1998, SPRUCE has quickly become one of New York's top Flower Shops receiving attention and acclaim from The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Food & Wine, Town & Country, Glamour, Martha Stewart Wedding, In Style Weddings, Woman's Day, Vogue, Victoria and Time Out New York.
