Elianna grew up in the New York City neighborhood of Chelsea where she nurtured and cultivated her passion for both design and the arts. She graduated from SUNY Purchase College with an MFA in Visual Arts, and received her BFA from Maine College of Art. Bringing a background in fine arts, an understanding of color theory, balance and form to floral design has become an important medium for her creative process.
Having worked as the Director of Operations at a luxury boutique floral design company in NYC for many years, Elianna delivered high quality service and craft to a diverse clientele. Using this experience she opened Aureate Florals in 2018, to realize the positive impact that florals can have on people and their events.
Elianna currently resides in Queens with her two beautiful daughters, Husband and Dog.
