They meet their clients in person, explore thoughts and ideas together and then devise one-off, bespoke creations each and every time.

 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.
