She grew up in the Caribbean (the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico) where you are automatically surrounded by color, rawness, vivacity and "flavor", all of these elements greatly influence her work. With a Fashion Designer as a mom, Flor grew up among fabrics, patterns, and sketches, she even stitched her fingers a couple of times when playing in her mom's workroom. All of this helped shape her aesthetic and gave her a great understanding of how design and the creative process in general works.
Her professional background includes all aspects of theater, documentary coordination, video production and editing, and a degree in Advertising from the University of Puerto Rico.
She loves traveling (even if it's across the street), eating delicious food, and celebrating people's birthdays.
Flor is based in Denver, Colorado where she lives with her wife Ileanexis and their three plants.
