Teresa Sena "Nature creates the most wonderful palette from which to choose. I am inspired daily by the textures and colors presented to me here on Maui. This, in turn, aids in the creation of original designs, specific to the client’s needs. To this day I am passionate about my work and always look forward to either creating or fulfilling someone’s vision.” As a Maui resident for over thirty years, Teresa resides on the cool slopes of Haleakala where she creates in her Upcountry studio. Her resume includes elite hotels, corporate functions, weddings and special events. As a devotee of hula and the Hawaiian culture, Teresa embraces the respect of the land and use of the island flora. Seasonal selections are her forté, along with the knowledge of floral seasons from around the globe. Teresa is able to offer each client limitless possibilities, with personal attention to their aesthetic. "I understand how challenging a destination event can be. My years of experience have helped me to communicate from a distance, and at the same time put the client at ease."
Kama ‘ia ke aloha a pa’a I loko. Bind love that it may remain fast within. xoxo Teresa
