Raised & schooled in New York City - a love of skiing & a less hectic life first brought me to these beautiful mountains, from the corporate world at The World Trade Center, Manhattan. Once settled into the country life, my interest in organic gardening & flowers grew. With a family history in the art & entertainment world my own creative side emmerged. As my flower gardens blossomed, From Maria's Garden began. Course study at the Vermont School of Floral Design & working with some of the state’s most respected floral designers I honed my floral design skills. I've been designing & arranging flora for weddings, special events & seasonal floral designs since the 90's. My passion & delight in working with all floral elements expresses itself in the creative and very personalized designs From Maria's Garden is known for.
