What is the creative process you go through when styling for an event or making an arrangement?
I'm consciously aware that colour is always the start of my creative process. I can imagine colours before I can imagine shapes. So once i've found colours that evoke a certain response from me, I move onto "what weird, interesting shape can I make out of this space."
Are there any florists you are loving right now?
So many, I'm so inspired by the work of others. Mary Lennox, Hattie Molloy, The Colourblind Florist-- to name a few.
Your home is full of plants (love)! Tell us more about this little passion of yours.
Ahh plants are just so wonderful. When I routinely take them out of the house to water, I step back and look at how much value they genuinely add to my little home. I'm just so fascinated by leafy greens! As mentioned before, I suspect it stems from my childhood. I genuinely find so much joy in watching them mature as well, knowing that I've helped them grow is fulfilling.
Do you have any tips for hitting the flower markets? It’s a flower crazed world up there!
Walk in with a clear mind, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle. Take a friend, and together soak it all in.. I used to love trying to identify as many flowers and specimens as I could see. The more you potter slowly, look intently, you discover the most beauty.
