Studio Flora Diva : Amazing Asheville Florist!

We absolutely had to share this post all about precious Beth of Studio Flora Diva! Get to know this amazing Asheville florist. Also, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out her work!

“I’m Beth, the diva behind Studio Flora Diva and I’ve been working in floral design since 1983. I’m an eclectic sort of gal.

I love helping my daughter with the horses and chores at her farm, and enjoy working in our organic vegetable garden all summer. The wreath on my front door is made out of dried okra and decorative corn from this year’s harvest. I love being outdoors, and spending time in nature inspires me and helps me restore my creativity. I’m all about no-tech time.

I have an accredited membership in AIFD, which is extremely selective and can be obtained only after a candidate has effectively demonstrated advanced professional ability of his or her floral artistry.

We must continue to demonstrate cutting edge art by meeting specified continuing education requirements. I moved to Asheville in 1992 from a small town in Western New York and knew Asheville before it became the big tourist attraction that it is today.

I love all things artsy and usually have some project in the works. Right now I’m working on a concept for a photo shoot for next year.”

See! We told you it was a good read!
