Hi. I’m Marina and I’d like to share a little bit about myself and how I’ve come to work within the world of flowers.
For me, flowers hold so much as they fill our senses with joy and memories. I have always loved flowers. In fact I have always loved nature. As a child I always wanted to be outside and this still remains the same today. I love walking in the woods, on the moors, and the beach – anywhere really! Nature grounds us and gives us a sense of ‘being’. I think that is why, quite often, my designs are inspired by nature. I love bringing ‘the outside inside!’
“Everyone should have flowers in their life. They brighten up a room and your mood too. They make you feel more relaxed and loved. They allow you to be creative and express yourself. Flowers make a difference!”
I’ve spent the majority of my working life as an Interior Designer and property developer in London and abroad. I loved creating beautiful spaces for people to live in but I wanted a change. I’d also worked as an Aromatherapist, where I discovered the healing powers of flowers and their scents. When I decided that I wanted to move from London the obvious choice was to relocate back to Devon where I grew up. I wanted to reconnect with nature and immerse myself in a career that I really loved.
I studied Floral Design at the Academy of Floral Art which is a Royal Horticultural Society, Gold Medal winning floristry school in Devon. I met some amazing people there. My tutors were so talented and encouraged me to follow my dream. A big ‘thank you’ goes out to them!
Becoming a Floral Designer seemed to me to be a natural way to combine my passion for flowers and having fulfilment in doing what I love to do every day!
So that is how it all began and now my passion is to create organic, imaginative designs that are different and personal to you.
Let’s connect and make your floral dream come true!
