My name is Maria,
I am a floral designer living in beautiful San Diego, California.
"I want to help you tell your story with flowers"
I started my Career in the visual arts in 1989 and have continued to curate my style over the years.
My boutique studio is a creative space that offers inspired collaboration between the designer and the client. The goal is to transform inspiration into memorable design for you.
Because every situation is unique and may require thinking outside the box all florals can be designed using fresh flowers as well as permanent botanicals.
Like each of my clients and design projects, the flowers have a personality of their own, I look forward to matching unique blooms to each project to add to the beauty of the day.
My education in the floral industry started when I was 16 and worked as a sales person in a retail floral shop. Its hard to believe it has been over thirty years, things have sure changed . My journey in the floral industry has blossomed. I have been fortunate to complete the Ornamental Horticulture Program at Cuyamaca College. Over the years I have received certifications in floristry, visual merchandising and design, event decor, trendy bouquets and several AIFD Design Experiences. I have also taken event planning courses through the College of Extended Studies at SDSU and worked as the event planner at Cuyamaca College Ornamental Horticulture Program for the 2019 Spring Season. I believe in continued education and have continued to curate my design skills over the past 30 years in order to bring my clients the best designs from around the world.
My creative process is influence by european garden designs, romantic bouquets and the natural world. I prefer using seasonal flowers when ever possible and creating designs that highlight the natural beauty of the bloom. All florals are hand selected to insure the best product on behalf of my clients. It is always an honor to work side by side with clients at my studio and truly get to know them. No matter the size of the project they will always end up with something very special and authentic.
