Paying it

Honoring the earth
and Mother Nature

Meet Vicki & Brooke, the mother daughter team behind Sister Golden

We began in 2014 as an online-based shop headquartered in sunny San Diego, CA. Two short years later we planted roots as a brick and mortar store in beautiful Door County, WI. Vicki (or ‘V’ as everyone calls her) is the artist behind our unique flower art made completely from Mother Nature. While V creates her art, Brooke manages most other aspects of the business, and we have a lot of help from talented people in between! Fun fact: the name Sister Golden comes from the America song Sister Golden Hair. The title of that song was the inspiration behind a nickname Brooke’s dad gave her when she was little, and the name just stuck.

Turning pieces of Mother Nature into works of art

Using 100% Mother Nature and no glue or tape, co-founder Vicki forages for her materials and builds each of her botanical art creations with tweezers and a pair of scissors. Everything is just balancing. Once she’s taken a photo of her final piece, she recycles the elements back outside. While the original work is fleeting, the prints created from her photograph stand the test of time.

Original Artwork Gifted Back to Nature

Co-owner Vicki creates stunning yet fleeting works of art made of 100% mother nature. Once her original is photographed, it’s recycled back into the earth. The originals are temporary, but our prints last forever.
