Why I do what I do: Watch the video!
I do what I do because I still wake up every day keen to go to work.
Where I do it
In our beautiful studio and offices in London, W10.
What drives me on
Pleasing people. I still love to really delight clients and have them come back to us time and time again. Also the changing seasons are total stimulus as the palette of flowers changes with every week and re-sparks the creativity.
What I am working on
Well I’m very excited about working on my next book for a start! And a wonderful co-curated evening in the Queen’s Gallery for the exhibition ‘Painting Paradise’ where I’m talking about the meaning and symbolism of flowers in some of the paintings and object d’art.
