Drawing & Designing Florals

It’s been over 12 years since I graduated from University & I’ve been lucky enough to have designed florals for almost every area in the marketplace.

I’ve been working on lots of things behind the scenes recently, things that I’ve been dreaming about for a long time! So… one of these dreams is that my little […]

Your Design Career

Next year marks the 10th Anniversary since I left my safe/in-house full time design job to fly solo. I literally handed in my notice before the big recession started (obviously I didn’t know that was about to happen), but taking a risk paid off. I felt like a number & not an individual working for […]
