Celina, the founder of Pearls In Bloom and the creative behind LET’s TALK with Teresa Ann, is a woman who wears many hats with great humor. She’s a wife to an incredible man, a mom to a hilarious and compassionate little boy, and is a multi-dimensional artist. Her work ranges from graphic design, designer of home décor goods and jewelry, sewing, painting, drawing, handmade dolls and toys, and so much more.
Since Celina was a little girl, both pearls and blooms of all types have held great meaning. She credits her grandmother’s love for pearls and handmade items as a great influence. Meanwhile, Celina’s love for blooms (flowers of all kinds) includes a funny story. Even as a little girl, she began to explore her entrepreneurial side. Together with her sister (and a shoulder push from their mom) they would go dumpster diving behind a local floral shop. Plant and flower castaways were creatively gathered and reimagined into beautiful little arrangements. She would walk down her block quickly selling out of her twenty-five-cent blooms; knowing she was about to bloom into incredible significance.
Celina has loved God since she was a little girl. Through a series of difficult phases in life, her faith in God—who heals and restores—has been her anchor. Above all, her desire is that others will experience God’s presence through her work and will want to draw closer to the original, ultimate creator.
