All my life I have been a professional cellist and teacher. I have been very privileged to have worked with hundred's of children and adults on their cello playing journey. I also created and was the Artistic Director of www.thesuperstringsclub.co.uk for 20 years.
The teaching still continues in my studio in Wick, Glastonbury and I also give concerts in nursing homes and schools.
As a keen amateur gardener I was not new to the techniques required to grow beautiful plants. However in 2017 I gained the R.H.S Level 2 qualification in practical horticulture and also work experience at the Bishops Palace Garden in Wells, Somerset. This led me to complete an online R.H.S course in How To Run A Nursery and also a very happy year working part time in the Bishops Palace Garden.
Growing and arranging the flowers for my daughter's wedding in 2017 prompted me to pursue a career as a florist and flower farmer. This also led me to creating 'Christmas at the Palace' in 2017 decorating the Bishops Palace, Wells with flowers and foliage gathered from its wonderful garden. September 2018 was spent attending a change of career course at www.tallulahroseflowers.com in Bath.
My garden has been transformed into a cut flower haven. I sell to the public at my gate, at local markets and I will create beautiful arrangements for your special occasions including sympathy flowers. Workshops are a favorite of mine and happen at www.bishopspalace.org.uk and in my studio here in Wick.
