I have always been drawn to the beauty of nature, getting lost in gardens, absorbing the scents and colours, admiring delicate petals and perfectly etched leaves. Being immersed in these things is when I am at my happiest so being able to work with flowers is a dream come true. Since my initial formal training in 2008, I have had the privilege of working with amazing florists from my home city in Wellington, to the other side of the world in the UK. It was a great experience to live and work in London for the two years. I worked for some very talented florists, arranging flowers for all types of occasions and working in some incredible venues. I was also fortunate enough to travel all over, seeing incredible places, making new friends and finding inspiration around every corner.
So now that I am back home, settling in to my favourite little city in the world, inspiration continues to surround me. Floristry is my passion and I feel very excited about starting this new chapter in my career and I look forward to sharing it with you.

"Flowers can be an expression of many things, they can convey emotion, ‘I love you’… ‘I’m sorry’… a bouquet can also become a unique reflection of ones personality, bubbly and bright, sweet and modest . . . but the thing I love best about flowers is they bring you back down to earth (excuse the pun).
