About Us

We're passionate about Succulents! Our family business began as a succulent obsession. Friends began asking to buy our succulent wreaths and designs, as word got out we found we had created a thriving business.

Succulents are beautiful, drought tolerant and easy to care for. We live in Southern California where great sunny weather and very little rain makes being water-wise a way of life.

Our area has countless succulent growers that fuel our passion, they're treasure troves of beautiful and unusual succulents. We’ve been collecting and propagating succulents for over two decades. Julia is also an artist with a little wanderlust so our creativity and designs are influenced by a study of art, design and world travel.

We create all sizes of beautiful succulent designs and FULL SIZED, sensational, 2"- 60" wreaths. Our award-winning succulent garlands and displays have been featured at world-famous hotels, botanical gardens, and tourist attractions. Our designs have also appeared in Style Me Pretty Bridal Inspirations, Society Bride, FOX TV, HGTV magazine, and Pioneer Woman magazine. Succulent Art Works is a "go-to" favorite for exclusive gifts for Mom, birthdays, weddings and all special occasions.

Julia Hillier is also the author of Succulent Style: A gardener's Guide to Growing and Crafting with Succulents available internationally everywhere books are sold online!

Many friendships have begun by sharing a passion for succulents and cuttings from our garden. It's still exciting and fun to find succulents we've never seen.

It's easy to share from a succulent garden, just remove a little leaf or snip a small cutting from a succulent, each grows a new plant. We enjoy teaching classes on succulents and succulent crafts and cherish the friendships we've made along the way.

We hope you'll find as much joy in our succulent designs as we have in making them.

Thank you for visiting our shop! 

Best Wishes for happy days and sunshine,

Julia and Scott
