This is my side hustle. My does of colour, composition and beauty that makes myself and the recipients of my flowers smile.
I create arrangements with a bit of rock’n’roll edge: Flowers are the rock stars, I’m just putting together the bands.
I create bespoke pieces for individuals, interiors, occasions and events that want something a bit different and truly believe that you don’t need to have just birthdays, valentines or other ‘usual’ occasions as an excuse to give or receive flowers (as you can see from the gift cards).
I love it. I absolutely cannot get enough of colour and Mamma Natures colour palettes. She’s badass.

A personal project for Millican Bags, which are produced in the Lake District. I helped art direct and co-ordinate the shoot, working alongside photographer Moy Williams and the founders of the company.
Locations included a Borrowdale bus stop, a slate mine and the now disused Cumberland Pencil Factory, an art deco building located in Keswick.
Ten years ago I dabbled in a little bit of legal spraypainting. I've recently gotten the itch again. I just love the process of scaling up, painting large and all the techniques involved in controlling a can of spraypaint to get the desired result.
It's not graffiti in it's truest most raw sense, I absolutely love the bombers and the all city crowd, I'm too old for all that though I'd be happy to talk appreciation over a pint.

Logo design - Branding - Marketing
Using the experience I've learnt over the years I've helped name, advise and brand small business start-ups so that they hit the ground running.
I've also helped grass roots projects in my local area, working with a group of local volunteers to help name the Portas Pilot scheme that's regenerating the high street in Forest Hill, Kirkdale and Sydenham.
I used to run a small online store, the best bit was designing the branding.
