"I love flowers, I could never tire of them. I'm always on the lookout for new, adventurous ways to work with flora and make beautiful things."

Flowers and skulls punctuate the overall composition, creating a harmonious balance. The hand-painted skulls are produced from scratch and the images are handcrafted with a aesthetic that embraces the subtle beauty of imperfection.

"My artistic practice developed over the last five years, inspired by my obsession with vintage postcards, the Dutch paintings of flowers and the theme of memento mori. I create all arrangements by hand: painting the backgrounds; casting and painting the Plaster of Paris skulls; choosing, preparing and arranging the flowers; incorporating props from my collection of vintage treasures.
