My name is Natalia Solis Vermette and I am the owner and Creative Director of Ingrid Rose Floral Artistry. My flower journey began on a beautiful September day, wandering the streets of Paris in search of the perfect blooms for a bouquet. Suffice to say, this now coined, "Paris Bouquet" was not so lovely, but instead of being discouraged, I woke up the next morning excited to try again. And so my love affair with flowers began.
The name Ingrid Rose Floral Artistry is inspired by my two grandmother's, Ingrid and Rosario. One, a classic beauty with timeless, elegant style and impeccable taste; the other a warm, vibrant spirit with a shoulder shimmy that could rock any dance floor. Together, they are classic with a twist, the same way I approach floral artistry.
I believe in creating art with flowers to honour their short life and beautiful cycle from seed to seed. I draw inspiration from the changing seasons - nature's ever-changing colour palette - paintings, music, and above all, the people I am blessed to design for.
Natalia creates in a private micro-studio located on beautiful Vancouver Island and specializes in weddings, events and editorials.
