With an emphasis on seasonal blooms, scent and creating a feeling of natural movement,
my designs are elevated, abundant and unique.
It is this passion and devotion to nature that has developed my individual style and love of botanicals.

If we harvest, we must sow ~ TFW
Every day we strive to make sustainable choices. We use Eco sourced papers, biodegradable wet packaging and recycled card for our stationary.
We refrain from using floral foams in any form which can be washed into waterways and is not biodegradable. We recycle wired mechanics and avoid cello wrapping. Believing that knowledge is power, we look back at practices from past era’s and research techniques from other cultures to minimalize our impact on mother nature.
We plant and grow foliage’s and flowers using zero chemical fertilisers and pesticides.
Agreed, it’s only a start but we are committed to further sourcing products and educating ourselves on practices that protect our planet.
The Flower Wonderer supports the World WildLife Fund for Environmental and Wildlife Conservation by donating $5 for every Botanica Arrangement purchased.
How did you decide on your floristry name?
I love travel, the wonderment of it and I adore flowers, it seemed like the perfect fit.
Is there a flower you wont ever work with?
No, if a client has a bond with a particular bloom I'll absolutely find a way to put my spin on it. Funny, I'm actually allergic to Budlea but I love to use it!
Did you study Floristry?
Yes, I attended Pearson's School Of Floristry and completed Cert III. Ive also attended master Classes and retreat workshops, I find those really beneficial.
What inspires you during lockdown?
Friendship, the way we support and keep each other sane! Also music, I have to listen to music when I'm making an arrangement.
What are you listening to now?
The Teskey Brothers, Sade, Corinne Bailey,I love her version of The Scientist.
What makes you angry?
Covid Protesting. I'm in total support of freedom of speech and support legal protest however this just seems counter productive
Do you make a lot of money as a Florist?
My advice, take it seriously and run it as a professional business. Know your numbers and set your goals because thats empowering. However, above all, do it for the love of it.
Whats next for your business?
I have a lot of exciting things happening! Some are long term plans and others are right around the corner. Im also doing some really inspiring collaborations at the moment, all in support of other creatives and small businesses.
If your weren't a florist what would you be?
I was in sales and marketing for 20 years prior to being a Floral Designer so I kind of know. But I did dream of being a Geologist when I was little...
