I haven’t always been a florist but I have always been attracted to flowers!
In England (the beautiful, charming Cotswolds) I was blessed with the chance to work alongside a spirited passionate botanist, florist, and horticultural artist. He guided me to use the old fashion techniques for growing vegetables and cut flowers.
I attended ‘L’ecole des fleuristes de Paris’. Through training and stages I acquired my Diploma in floristry. I was fortunate enough to spend time in some of the best flower boutiques in Paris and Versailles with some of the best recognised florists in France, ‘Meilleur Ouvrier De France’. Where I learnt how to care for flowers and produce compositions for all events. Happily and sadly, there are always occasions for flowers.
I enrolled and attended courses at ‘Le Potager du Roi, Versailles’ and fine tuned my skills in the traditional, often rigid ‘D’art Floral’ rules. Together with courses of Ikebana, classic bouquets and flowers for fun with the ‘Société d’horticulture des Yvelines’. I am always drawn to pastel tones. Working by mass or champetres, countryside bouquets. I enjoy mixing herbs and flowers which can further bring the garden into the house…
Put simply, I want to share my passion and techniques around an ambiance of chat, laughter and (of course) afternoon tea!
