A LIFETIME'S PASSION FOR
LOVINGLY RECREATED IN PAPER
FLOWERS, FRESH FROM THE STUDIO
Most people have a favourite flower...what is yours? The chances are that your favourite flower is rooted in memory. Perhaps it grew in the garden of your childhood. Perhaps it was your grandmother's favourite flower. Maybe the flowers you carried on your wedding day, or the flowers you give whenever a message is too important for mere words to convey.
My love of flowers stretches back to my childhood in the fields, woods and moors of North Yorkshire. I am compelled to create flowers and scarcely a day goes by without me making a piece of botanical art - some days I simply have to attempt to recreate a nettle, or try - yet again! - to capture the perfect umbellifer.
I am called to create beautiful floral pieces, and I do this by hand using paper and wire. The materials I use (including crepe and tissue paper and waxed paper tape) are very important to me and I endeavour as far as possible not to include and plastic in my creations (just the occasional dab of glue)
The passion-flower that grew in my grandmother's garden.
Many of our deepest memories are rooted in nature, taking us back to the sensory pleasures of childhood. The memories evoked by a certain scent, the flowers we picked for our mothers, the woodland walks we took and the flowers we remember.
A handmade flower is a beautiful keepsake for yourself - or a thoughtful and tender gift for someone you love.
What flower would you choose?
Recent commissions I have completed include a pair of Night Blooming Cereus flowers, a tropical bouquet and a giant foxglove. A range which truly reflects the variety of nature.
My process involves a lot of research in order to produce the most accurate floral representation I can, and this includes in-depth communication with you. My passion flower has violet and brown petals (shown to the left) - but your passion flower may be pure white, or ruby red.
