WHAT IS YOUR EXPERTISE? Arranging flowers, I feel most in my element when I'm surrounded by flowers. Flowers really are the focal point for the dĂŠcor at weddings and I feel lucky to be able to provide that element and create something unique for each couple.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING IT? I've been in business for about 6 months, but I've been around flowers for many years either working at flower shops or helping other florists in the area.

DESCRIBE YOUR WORK ENVIRONMENT. I'm currently working from home which can be difficult at times because my space is so limited. I'm looking forward to warmer weather so I can set up shop in the garage and really make a mess of things (the kitchen is literally a disaster after 5 minutes of me getting a flower shipment, thank goodness for a patient husband!).

WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION? My work is inspired by nature mostly. Ever since becoming a florist, it's amazing how much more I am attentive to the flowers and plants in my environment. I'm also inspired by anything in the creative industry. I truly believe all creative industries go hand in hand and we all inspire each other.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT? My biggest accomplishment is starting Tinge. Too many people think a long time about starting a business and never do it. If there is any advice I could give those thinking about taking the business plunge, I say go for it! Even if it doesn't take off you never have to ask yourself what if. Doing what you love is the best thing you can do for yourself, it definitely has been for me.
