My name is Maria,
I am a floral artist specializing is custom floral designs for all occasions.
My studio, Petal Vision Design and Events is located in Southern California, where I reside with my husband, daughter and fur babies.
The studio is a creative space dedicated to thoughtful collaboration. I am passionate about helping my clients develop their design inspirations to help tell a personal story.
"I want to help you tell your story with flowers" has become my motto.
Because like each of my clients, every design is unique, all floral designs can be created using fresh flowers as well as permanent botanicals.
I have always loved being in the garden surrounded by nature and designing with flowers. I love working with unique textures and bright colors.
Flowers add a timeless beauty to our environment and generate joy and comfort to all. I love adding little scented surprises from my garden to elevate your designs with scents.
I started my creative journey in 1989 in the visual arts and I have continued my studies through the years. I am a firm believer in continued education, you are never too old to learn something new. Going back to college in my late forties to study ornamental horticulture, attending workshops and learning from designers from around the world has helped me to grow as a person and as a designer and because of this I offer my clients a unique design prospective.
In the last few years I have been shifting to more sustainable practices, growing some of my own foliages and trying to shop locally sourced and seasonal flowers. I want to support our local flower farmers and businesses, by buying California and American grown flowers whenever possible. When we buy local, seasonally blooms, by color palettes and textures instead of being flower specific we can enjoy the natural bounty that Mother Nature and the seasons provide while helping our local economy.
Let us all do our part in helping support our local farms and growers.
The flowers pictured in this bouquet are repurposed and ten days old, They have been repurposed into this amazing Woodland Botanical Bouquet.
We can all play a small part in protecting our natural resources in many ways.
