My nanna inspired me to become a florist - when I was little, we used to arrange Sweet Peas from her garden together. Floristry is all I ever wanted to do. I got my first experience at 14, when on school placement, then began working at a local florist whilst studying at college. I love the creative side of floristry, and there’s nothing better than being given the freedom to create something out of beautiful flowers. Funeral flowers also mean a lot to me – creating something special for people to help them say goodbye.
Florist, Pickering & Malton
I grew up in Poland, and was inspired to be a florist by all the beautiful flowers and stunning plants that grow there. My favourite aspect of floristry is using seasonal flowers to bring a real sense of time and place to arrangements, and using my creativity to bring a special, personal touch to someone’s gift. Outside of the shop, I enjoy exercising, eating out, travelling and spending time together with family and friends.
Trainee Florist, Pickering & Malton
I have lived in Pickering all my life. My Mum is a Florist and now life has taken me down the same path. I am a keen animal lover, i have Dogs and horses. I like to go to the local shows and show our horses and foals and enter the flower competitions and photography competitions.
Passionate enthusiastic, 11 years experience in house trained, the best part of the job is interacting with customers to interpret the idea they have and turn it into a finished design. I'm quite artistic. and entered (and won!) lots of art shows when I was little. Progressing to flowers and floral display was a natural progression for me!
Florist, Malton & Pickering
I’ve always loved plants and flowers, and after completing a foundation degree in Horticulture, decided to pursue a career in floristry at Dales. I’m fairly new to Dales, and love learning from the rest of the team, as well as getting creative with the huge array of plants and flowers we have in the shops. When not at work, I like to compete in flower competitions, like Harrogate Flower Show, as well as walking and enjoying the countryside.
