I have worked for many years as an interiors stylist, often producing flower stories for magazines. Until recently I worked as a florist at the beautiful Edinburgh shop, Rose and Ammi before returning to live on the Isle of Wight and starting Wild Florist Wild.

My obsession with flowers comes from my family. My mother's a constant gardener and an inspiration, my father, in his own inimitable style, still arranges the church flowers aged 83.

 

Here on the island our garden sits on a chalk hillside that borders the downs on the south of the Isle of Wight, high above sea level. The soil is grey and unpromising and the garden long neglected but slowly it's coming into bloom. It's a work in progress and I hope to record some of it's development in the journal pages. My daughter says I'm addicted to the garden which is probably true.

It's my ambition that Wild Florist Wild tread lightly on the earth and be sustainable. We garden organically and the flowers, foliage and materials used are all locally sourced or home-grown. We use recyclable packaging materials as far as we can, and plan to organise weekly deliveries of flowers to reduce our carbon footprint.

I hope to run small one-to-one workshops in 2023.  Please message me if you would like to discuss a commission.
