Meet our wildly passionate and broadly experienced team at Poho Flowers. Our staff are determined to consistently impress through beautiful contemporary floral design.
My childhood was filled with trips to the country, picnics in the Botanic Gardens with Gran and school holidays picking plums and veggies on Nan & Pops farm. My love of nature and all things wild and wonderful started long ago and floristry has enabled me to continue that and call it work. The abundance and seasonality is what makes it all so special. That, and this amazing group of incredibly talented people I get to work with every day, not to mention the growers! Nature creates the best colours, shapes and textures, we then get to interpret a brief and bring this all together.
I decided I wanted to be a florist when I was about 6 years old and I've never looked back, I've been doing it for over a decade now and can't imagine doing anything else. Being surrounded by natures beauty everyday is a privilege and a pleasure and you'll still find me squealing with delight whenever I come across something a little bit special at market. My work is focused on colour and tone and letting all the weird, wiggly stems do their thing just like Poho lets us weird wiggly florists do ours!
I was given an opportunity to work at Poho flowers as a junior florist whilst studying floristry at Pearsons back in 2009. After graduating as an Interior Designer and wanting to pursue something creative with hands on work and instant gratification, I gave floristry a good go and fell in love with it ever since.That was more than 8 years ago and I'm still pinching myself that I'm still here at Poho doing what I love best, creating floral designs as senior florist for events, weddings, corporates and serving the local community at this gorgeous store. What I love most about floristry is being able to appreciate and use what mother nature has to offer with the help of our fabulous growers to transform spaces to suit an occasion, whether to create large hanging installations for events or simply putting together a bouquet as a gift for someone's home. Trends in floristry, just like fashion changes constantly. I am always on the look out for exotic blooms, foliages and plants wherever I go. Inspirations can be found in nature itself, as well as social media, magazines and sometimes just in the backyard garden. I love my job and so blessed that I've been able to do what I love to do for this long and hopefully I get to do it for many more years to come. Thank you Ed and Dan for giving me this opportunity to still be here at Poho.
I had always imagined myself doing something creative, exactly what, after high school, I wasn’t sure. Then I accidentally fell into a part time florist job which suddenly fulfilled those ideals. After a few years at TAFE, and a rose thorn or 100 I realised that there was no turning back, and how now been working full time as a florist for just under 10 years. Landing at Poho Flowers has been the highlight of this story. Being able to work with some of the industries most talented and genuine people has really brought my skills leaps and bounds. Give me hydrangea, blousy roses and big fat dahlias and I’ll show you what I can do!
I have been a florist since leaving school, first working for the family interflora business before opening my own florist shop which I ran until coming to Australia 7 years ago. Currently in love with all Australian native flowers but also all the seasonal flowers that remind me of England. I love tiny purple violets to huge stems of cloud like smoke bush and pretty much everything in between. I enjoy looking around galleries and the botanical gardens on my day off and i’m at my happiest when combining flowers with my love of sculpture to create bespoke bouquets and arrangements for customers to enjoy in their homes and work places. Working on weddings, creating installations and serving customers with beautiful bouquets for gifts and their homes is what makes me tick and I feel privileged to work with such natural beauty.
