Monika Carriere sees floral design as a form of art and expression. As a very visual person, she has always been passionate about fine arts while exploring colour combinations, textures, and composition.
Monika began experimenting with floral design as a teenager in Germany. After working in a small flower shop, she studied under a Master Floral Designer in Stuttgart for three years. Following her mentorship, she managed a flower shop in a world-class garden centre, where she carried out numerous creative projects.
Drawing from her love of nature, culture, and european techniques has inspired Monika to create My Motif, a fusion of visual and floral art, serving the Niagara Region and welcoming creative commissions.
