about me

The Face Behind the Flowers

Before I get to know you, your desires and what floral magic you’d like me to weave, let me tell you something about my journey, how I fell into floristry and what makes me tick.

After years working in the corporate world, I was yearning for a creative outlet.  My passion for all things creative had slowly got lost in the grey repetition of daily life and there wasn’t time for the creative projects I craved.  Deciding to take control, I enrolled in a floristry course, and something clicked into place. Flowers slowly took over my life and my home, and it very quickly became apparent that working as a florist was the calling for me.

I’m based in Battersea, London. I often dream of escaping to somewhere greener but find myself drawn back to the buzz and excitement of city life.  One day, when London releases its hold over me, you’ll find me in a lusciously overgrown garden filled with fragrant flowers, with my own studio at the bottom and a sleepy dachshund curled up at my feet while I work.  That’s the dream!

Why Iris & Co?

Iris was my Nan – a beautiful soul with exactly the right balance of gentle twinkle and stubborn fire. Growing up, she was my constant champion.

With her signature blend of kind heart and no-nonsense attitude, she would counsel me not to let a single opportunity pass me by.

With Iris & Co, I chose to plant my opportunity and watch it grow.  The name for the business felt like the most natural choice in the world. I’m so happy to be taking Nan on my floral journey and I hope that I can make her proud.
