oxana1thBringing an abundance of talent plus a sprinkling of magic to the fresh flowers and foliage that pass through her hands is Sol Ambiance’s head designer, Oxana Sanukova.
Oxana’s relationship with flowers is both deeply intuitive as well as highly technical, supported by an innate knowledge of flora and fauna honed from a lifelong passion for gardening.
Her journey with flowers began with an idyllic childhood in a little European village gardening alongside her beloved grandfather. Her interest in floristry was thus kindled, and her future path was set. 
Oxana worked hard to convert her love affair with flowers into a dream career, completing formal floral design studies in Russia followed by freelancing for various florist shops and designers in San Francisco and the Bay Area. 
As her skills developed, Oxana’s talent began to get noticed. Her flair for floral design led to scholarships with the prestigious San Francisco Garden Club and American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD). Her entries in the National AIFD student competitions in Miami and Las Vegas have also been recognized, winning awards across a broad range of categories.
Oxana is a firm believer that you can never stop learning and honing your craft, and over the last few years she has also been working towards receiving an Associate Degree in Floristry from the City College of San Francisco’s Environmental Horticulture and Floristry Department.
