Plant Girl Iris – Autumn at Arley Hall

I love this time of year! There’s such beautiful colours around. 1 day a week I’m learning a new botanical skill, which compliments my design & photography work too (you can read my previous posts here). I just love it as my time at Arley makes me so relaxed (& I do it instead of the gym). […]

Garden & Flowers Photoshoot Behind The Scenes

Last week we had a day of really fun & colour-filled shooting in my garden with lots of flowers & foliage. The day was a mixture of getting some gardening shots for my studio & making some gorgeous flower art for The Colour Gang (my sister site Make it in Design’s membership club). We had […]

Plant Girl Iris on Instagram

Hello lovely people, for those of you that know me well or have followed me for a while will know I’m a creative soul who juggles a lot of things & I always love to learn. At the moment I’m furthering my knowledge in the botanical world to compliment my design studio work & I […]

New Design Work & Trying New Things

Sometimes I just get a creative urge & the designs just flow out of me no matter what time it is (& I ignore what I’m meant to be doing). I’ve also been trying out a lot of new things lately from visiting plant shows to getting a second job as a gardeners apprentice! The […]

Plant Girl IRIS

I’m up to all sorts of randomness as per usual. Story of my life & career! If it’s to do with creativity or learning then I have a thing with a lot of serendipitous occurrences following me around. To cut a long story short, I’ve been drawing plants & nature for my job for over […]

In preparation for the photoshoots in Rachael’s home & studio we’ve been going through previous shoots & picking our favourites to use […]

Seasonal Garden Inspiration

Costa del Liverpool! Summer really is the best season for my garden as the flowers have exploded all around my garden studio & the brick wall / bird box village area at the back. It’s all growing so beautifully & there’s so much colour everywhere. I especially love the pink Echinacea & the vibrant yellow Rudbeckia. I […]

Summer colour inspiration

My summer has been so full of colourful inspiration from trips around flower shows to gigs in London, I’ve spotted so much around me. This pretty rainbow flowered R I spotted at the RHS Tatton Park flower show. Gorgeous tropical flowers from a gift given for my birthday. Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to […]

Gardeners World Live Visit

I’ve been booking in lots of new & different things to attend or try lately. I’ve realised that I’m such a fidget & an inquisitive soul & that I need to keep trying new things, learning & booking spontaneous randomness (such as sky dives & solo sketching adventures to the likes of Havana) to keep me […]

DIY Floral Styling

I recently had quite a lot of dreaded business & admin tasks to get through, & after having a sort of my garden, I decided I needed a little creative break! We’re forvever needing new & gorgeous imagery for my Make it in Design classes as well as here in the blog so it was still […]
