Mary Saltmarsh has been making pressed flower designs since 1980. She opened her first studio in Contoocook, New Hampshire in 1981 where she sold a variety of handcrafted items. A move to Maine forced her to close her studio but she continued to attend craft fairs and sell her lampshades to gift shops in the local area. Years of experience in the art of pressed flowers has made her product second-to-none. She has a keen eye for detail and all her designs show it.
