best thing about being a florist: i get a buzz from it all! i just enjoy the whole experience- from the early morning visits to the flower markets to setting up a major event. i also love the different varieties of natural materials that become available to us with the changing of the seasons.
favourite flower combination: it has to be simple but with texture. and i love sticks!
most memorable event/occasion you have done flowers for: i still remember the exhaustion from the sydney olympics- going through security at night, setting up the rooms to the early hours of the morning, going straight to the markets then doing more events that day. those two weeks were a blur! but loads of fun, too.
you are inspired by: my staff, with their enthusiasm and fresh ideas. and clients who come in with brilliant concepts and challenge our imagination.
you are passionate about: my bed! its so comfortable; shame i only get to visit it occasionally. but really its the great gift of flowers and the people in the industry. over many years i have come to love the flower markets. there is a special kind of buzz in the early mornings- all the beautiful materials, the growers, the many florists, it makes you want to be passionate about what you do!
