Teresa Sabankaya

Teresa Sabankaya is a floral designer, floriographist, and author of The Posy Book, (2019), and the upcoming Modern Floriography (2024). Teresa has been providing professional floral design services for elegant lifestyles in the Monterey and San Francisco Bay Area for over thirty years, designing florals for daily enjoyment, weddings, and other milestones. She is most notably known for the creation of her modern-day posies, which are garden bouquets that tell a story in the language of flowers.

Her work has been featured in Victoria Magazine and Hoffman Media Books-The Art of Flowers, and Living with Roses, Country Gardens Magazine, Elle Magazine, The NY Times, and Sunset Magazine. She has been a participant in many flower shows, including the prestigious Bouquets-to-Art, DeYoung Museum, Golden Gate Park, and Monterey Museum of Art.

Teresa lives in Bonny Doon, a special little enclave amongst the redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains, with her husband, Nezih, and their fur baby girl, French Bulldog, Violet. She has two grown daughters that live nearby. She enjoys any time in the garden and especially loves to entertain there with her family.
