Artist Statement

From a very young age I remember a fascination in the continuous cycle of seasons, their beauty, diversity and dependability.  Having had a career in Human Resources for many years working in large corporations and as a consultant, flowers were always my down time. I had always created flowers arrangements for family weddings and events but after hitting a pivotal age and with the support of my husband and family I gained the courage to say ‘I’m creative and I’m going to create for a living’.  So Fig and Fern Floral was born. I’m a big supporter of local British blooms, buying as close to home as possible and I grow from my home cutting garden, ensuring I can have those special elements which bend and twist and give movement and interest to my work. I see my style of flower arranging as part of the current movement which recognises floral art as a classic sculptural art form.
