Since growing up and evolving my floral work, I have always been influenced by my childhood interests, studying the different eras of fashion, society and the ways it influenced the gardening and flower craft at the time.

Culture from bygone eras has always fascinated me, having a need to keep parts of it around me and having a taste of it in my work. I have always been attached to the designs and use of flowers from the Victorian period, using Roses and Peonies in this arrangement and also from the 50s and 60s…this is probably why I love collecting vintage vases, urns and also teapots. I never miss an opportunity to create a beautiful arrangement in something that’s already been used and has a story to tell.
