Adria Vitlar

Adria is delighted to join the Stone Barns Center team as a florist. Originally from Pittsburgh, she grew up spending long summer weekends at her aunt and uncle’s dairy farm outside of Buffalo, where she learned to love being outdoors. She discovered her interest in flowers almost by accident. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, she has worked on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in regional theatres around the country. Between acting jobs, though, she worked as a rooftop gardener, a second mate on a commuter yacht, and a caterer before she began work with Poppies & Posies in Dobbs Ferry. There, she learned the ropes (and the vines) of floral arranging. And it was at her first event with them that she first worked at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. She honed her skills working at Brave Floral, a floral design and boutique shop in Maplewood, New Jersey, and by taking workshops and courses with Sarah Winward and Putnam & Putnam.

On the side: In her free time, Adria enjoys drawing, painting, and printmaking.
