“Floristry was not in my plan – it just happened, but I can’t imagine what my life would be like without flowers!”
Very happy on return from Brazil to find this interview published on Interflora Australia’s website, highlighting some of my philosophy in relation to teaching at the Zita Elze Design Academy, along with background stories on Chelsea Flower Show and my Sleeping Beauty flower gown for Brides The Show. Read more too about my not so direct path into floristry.
“…what I do is very different from what you find at other schools – I help my students to discover and develop their own creativity. While I believe in good technique, my mantra is that it must come second to my approach! The results from my students are amazing… I love to draw inspiration from emotions, this is the core of my teaching philosophy.”
