Tony Palmieri, AIFD – A member of the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) since 1994, Tony has received several first-place honors in local and regional design competitions including Northeast Floral Expo’s Designer of the Year 2007 and 2008 and a blue ribbon for his entry in the  2007 Fine Art and Flowers event at The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. His roots in graphic design, combined with a taste for the surreal, add a sculptural edge to his work.

As an accredited member of AIFD, Tony is part of a world-wide artist community committed to promoting the highest professional standards in floral design. This affiliation fuels his drive to innovate by providing education through national design symposia, which feature top floral design experts from around the world.

Artists who have moved him include Andy Goldsworthy, Ernst, Dali, Tori Amos, Tom Waits, Neil Gaiman and Hitomi Gilliam, but none have inspired him as much as his kids.
