I started Kreative Hands in 2001 from my home-based studio in Woodland Hills, California, with a passion to “kreate” and make a difference in people’s lives.
As a busy mother raising twins with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Design Certification from Southern California School of Floral Design, I've learned over the years to reuse, re imagine and reshape traditional floral arrangements into one of a kind masterpieces.
What used to be a small flame of passion has grown tremendously over the years through collaboration with family members and friends that make a talented and passionate team of designers and stylists:
- My daughter Jeneeka Perera
- Pat Pantumangual - Thai design guru and long time friend
- Laura Tellier - Creative graphic designer
- Essi Auguste Virtanen - Copy editor and web designer
- Alex Austin - Portrait Photographer
- Kristin Hayes - Artist
- Ana Castillo- Writer
I feel beyond blessed that Kreative Hands has grown from my vision to a family and friend business where we lend our “kreative” hands to support one another to “kreate” masterpieces meeting our clients’ wishes and vision. Additionally, the friendships that I have found through this business fulfill my heart every single day, as the connection remains way after the event is over.
