What drew you to floristry and how did you get started in the industry?
My love of flowers started in my childhood. Our home was set among 28 acres of Australian bushland. My mother would walk with me and my sisters through the garden and bush, pointing out plants and blooms, calling them by their botanical and common names. After four years working in New York, Australia called me home, and unsure which direction to take, I joined my sister Ineke on a floristry course and quickly realised I’d found my calling.
