I grew up with my mother and grandmother who loved to garden. I have many fond memories of walking through the garden with my grandmother as she would explain to me the different kinds of flowers and how to look after them.
I began my creative journey in the world of costuming for theatre and film. Having spent nearly 20 years as the Head of Wardrobe for Red Deer Polytechnic (nee College), I was able to meet many inspiring and collaborative people.
I am a strong believer in lifelong learning. I am changing direction in my career and floral design will allow me to immerse myself into something different and let my creativity bloom in a new way. Floral design will also allow me to continue working with people to express their emotions through flowers.
I am looking forward to a new way to express my creativity in this new medium.
Laura and I have had fun working together and I have learned so much from this amazing teacher! I assure the shop will be in good hands while Laura explores new adventures.
