After many years of travelling and living all over the world, I have gained many creative experiences and skills from all over Europe and Australia. With a bachelor of Interior Design from Swinburne University Melbourne, studying in Copenhagen, and living and working for an architectural company in India, my travels and creative journey led me on a path to eventually find a love of floristry, styling, planning, weddings and events. However, I still have a huge love for interior design, with a broad range of skills, and have previously worked on retail, residential and hospitality designs as well as event and exhibition design. Working from initial concepts to final construction, communicating closely with clients to work around their ideas, concepts and budgets. As I have travelled so much I adapt well to new people, places, skills and roles. Being a designer I am a complete perfectionist, yet can work efficiently and under pressure. I love deadlines, and thrive on fast paced environments as well. I am definitely someone who will work over time if a job needs to be done, and everything I do, I do it to the best I can, because in my mind if you are going to do a job, do it properly, and completely exceed your clients expectations above and beyond what they expected. If you employ me, I promise you will not be disappointed!!

I placed 3rd in an Australian wide competition for one of my floral designs. Each entry had to be suitable for placement on the table of a wedding banquet at a country property, either a tall or low arrangement depending on the location of the table at the wedding. http://www.wildflowersaustralia.com.au/floristry-competition/2012-winners/winners-category-2-purely-australian
