Lucy Ageeva fell in love with flowers and design at an early age. She spent her childhood working with her grandmother growing and selling flowers in the countryside in Ukraine. She began to design her own bouquets by 12 years old.
Lucy’s first experience with the school of floral design was through her education in Kiev while studying under Antonina Fedorovna, a professional floral designer from Latvia with over 35 years of experience. Shortly after she began to work at a flower store in Kiev.
Lucy received a four year university degree is social psychology and in 2006 she attended The Stas Zubov Higher School of Floral Excellence. During this time she continued her professional work in several flower stores. Her interests flourished to include landscape design. After educating herself she was hired to design the landscaping of two restaurants and some private country house gardens in Kiev.
She began to travel around the world eventually moving to Brussels, Belgium for two years to continue her education. She attended flower shows and exhibitions in Holland and also worked in friends’ studios learning as much as she could along the way. While in Brussels she spent time visiting Daniel Ost’s gallery and had the opportunity to talk with him on occasion.
Lucy was searching for more inspiration so she moved to Paris to gain more knowledge of floral design and deepen her artistic experience.
In 2009 she was invited to Moscow to create a collection of flowers for an online flower store. She continued to work for the last three years with this company while also working for herself as a freelance floral and landscape designer for event agencies.
Lucy now resides in Brooklyn, NY and is continuing her career as a floral and landscape designer.
