Rosemin Jutha’s career began and stemmed from her love of art, creating and working with her hands and a desire to have a business which led to a decision of moving to Toronto to take Fashion Merchandising at Ryerson University.

Her first flower shop was located near the Meridian Hotel, now the Sutton Place Hotel, for two years, she relocated her shop to The Landing in trendy Gastown area for 9 years , then moved it to the heart of Vancouver at the Terminal City Club near all the action of the Convention Centre, the Fairmont Water Front Hotel, the Pan Pacific Hotel and the core corporate business world of Vancouver for another 9 years. Currently she has dedicated her energy and enthusiasm to her present shop Queen Bee Flowers.
Rosemin has a genuine passion for the floral industry. She has been seduced, as any flower enthusiast might be, by the prospect of being able to crystallize her creative visions through floral design. Fascinated daily by the endless beauty, simplicity and infinite colors of flowers she feels the “Call of Flowers”. Rosemin Jutha has built a reputation for excellence in her field. She has had the privilege over the years to service and partner with several corporate clients and high profile events, hotel contracts, conventions, memorable personalized weddings and has worked on various prestigious and notable dignitary functions. She is an artist who understands not only color, form and design principals but also the vital integrity of flowers- firmly believing that flowers and plants have incredible healing powers and nourish the soul.
She has spent the last 26 years learning, exploring and perfecting the art of flowers. Her desire to share her enthusiasm and skills has led her to become a floral design instructor for groups and she regularly volunteers her teaching for non-profit day seminars.
