Head Florist, Owner


Cindy started gardening with her grandmother at the age of five and learned the fine art of pinching snapdragons.  She learned about color and texture from her mother who was an artist and wedding gown designer.  Determined to express her own artistic voice she enrolled in floral design instruction at the prestigious FlowerSchool New York.  After completing the advanced design series and two study-abroad programs in Holland, Belgium and France her love for floral design expanded as she began to freelance for several flower shops in the heart of Long Island’s Gold Coast.  

Once again, eager to learn more about the beauty of flowers and the delight of helping others share their passion for floral design, she started offering floral design classes at a popular wine and cheese shop in Locust Valley, Curds and Whey,  This eventually led to owning and operating her own studio in the heart of Cold Spring Harbor, New York.  You can usually find her in the early morning hours hiking with her beloved Golden Retriever, always in pursuit of nature’s beauty.



“I highly recommend Cold Spring Harbor Flowers for any occasion! Cindy does a fabulous job on floral arrangements that are long lasting and beautiful. She delivers an array of hand picked flowers and each bouquet is creatively designed. I have used her for 3 years and have been pleased with her work every time and always get lots of compliments on her arrangements!”

Katie Hopwood

“We are glad that we used Cindy as the florist for our wedding! Her work is extremely beautiful and well thought out. Cindy did flowers for our wedding party, bride’s bouquet, and table center pieces. Everything was wonderfully color coordinated with the theme at our venue and bridal party outfits. She went above and beyond and incorporated everything we asked for. The arrangements were absolutely stunning and her work is highly recommended for any event.”

Fernanda and Thomas Ferrara

“Cindy is just as talented as she is sweet! Each time we have worked with Cindy, we have given her an idea or theme we were looking for and have felt comfortable leaving the rest to her better judgement. She is so creative and her arrangements have exceeded our expectations. Such a pleasure to work with!
