"Everything Gaby makes is truly an art form. Her attention to detail, insistence  on quality and flawless execution make her the perfect choice for your special day!" ~ Megan B.

I'm an independent, certified floral designer (CFD) located in the Metro Milwaukee, Waukesha and Lake Country area. I truly appreciate the physical aspect and unlimited creativity of floral design, and enjoy working together with each client to create unique pieces to meet their individual needs.

I’ve had the chance to exhibit my work at the Milwaukee Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA), Mitchell Park Domes, Pabst Mansion, Boerner Botanical Gardens, and even the Wisconsin State Fair, among other places!

I’m also a student of ikebana (Japanese floral arranging) and have earned an instructor certificate from the Ichiyo School based out of Tokyo Japan. My immediate teacher, Janet Knowlton, lives in Michigan, and I also have the pleasure of continuing studies under our Iemoto Naohiro Kasuya (aka head master) via monthly Zoom workshops.

I have found a passion in working with flowers and truly hope Pink Opal Floral spreads a little love and joy wherever you find me with flowers for the heart.
