best thing about being a florist: working with nature and creative, quirky people each day. appreciating the change of seasons through flowers and foliage.
favourite flower combination: i love tonal flowers and to be honest my favourite combination changes each season. i am loving coral tones at the moment. i truly love trailing stephanotis, though.
most memorable event/occasion you have done flowers for: it is hard to nominate one particular event but i did create some flowers for an artist friend's wedding that springs to mind. on all the tables were amazing terrariums with naughty miniature figurines inside of them as well as an abundance of exotic orchid stems and pitcher plants, displayed on moss. it's wonderful to be allowed full creative licence.
you are inspired by: artists and designers in a variety of fields. i am also constantly inspired by the flower growers, particularly their work ethic and the exquisite produce they provide us. my mum is also an inspiration to me.
you are passionate about: flowers, nature, gardens, food and cooking, my friends & family and the sydney festival.
