Design and colour were my first love. Then flowers found me and we clicked: it all made sense. I've been a florist for over fifteen years, and have worked for many fantastic Auckland boutiques, where I honed my craft and picked up many tricks of the trade.
My artistic practice developed over the last five years, inspired by my obsession with vintage postcards, the Dutch paintings of flowers and the theme of memento mori. I create all arrangements by hand: painting the backgrounds; casting and painting the Plaster of Paris skulls; choosing, preparing and arranging the flowers; incorporating props from my collection of vintage treasures. 
I love flowers, I could never tire of them. I'm always on the lookout for new, adventurous ways to work with flora and make beautiful things.
