I am one of those lucky people who just adore what they do! I love inspiring people for the momentous moments & special occasions in their life with exquisite flowers and beautiful styling props.

My love of flowers stems from spending hours amongst the blooms and herbs in my grandmother’s garden as a little girl.

Playing inside cavernous branches of the magnificent hydrangea, picking one of my Grandfather’s prized roses to carry around with me all day to enjoy it’s sweet perfume…. relocating snails out of the garden and worms into the garden.

Now, on my farm, I wake up bright and early to collect the florals for the day as Hook, the larrikin rooster cheekily welcomes the sun and watches protectively over his harem of hens.  Rosie, my rowdy pup runs happily through the rows of peonies with a basket to help/hinder me collecting them. Possum the galah and Chachi the parrot always have a chat and nibble of the fresh sunflower seeds scattered on the lawn. Rod, my main squeeze, plays flamenco guitar under the weeping fig while I design a fabulous floral gown for a photo shoot. Life is perfect, I’m living my dream.

I love creating & designing beautiful pieces of floral art – from sweet and simple all the way to the spectacular! Working with event coordinators, I help bring a room, marquee or simple area to life with flowers. Flowers relax, be-dazzle, impress and evokes the senses through sweet perfumes.

I take the utmost pride in my designs & my name. Over the years I have helped to inspire brides by passing on “the seasons’ trends to many publications as well as being a freelance writer for some of Australia’s top Floral Industry Magazines.
