BIOGRAPHY

See my collection at FLOOS

Born 16.04.65           DENMARK
 I´m from a creative family and have been surrounded by creativity my whole life.
 After high school I wanted to be an architect and waiting to start at the school, I was working in a big beautiful flower shop.

 It was very soon clear, that I had potential– and the owners kept asking me if I wanted to be a florist and start training in in their shop. And so I started, a bit of coincidence. I´m sure I would have been an okay architect – but I know that being a florist is the right choice for me, and I have never regretted the way of life.

 Since I have been a florist, I have tried working in a lot of different ways, styles etc – and for the moment I think it is a lot of fun working with movements, especially in huge arrangements because it challenges me a lot and satisfies my playful self and my need to explore and learn. I like working with all the different techniques – different techniques for each arrangements, and I love having all the knowledge to work differently.

 I´m a Danish Champion and International Champion, love to compete. I don´t take any notice of what other florists expect of me in the competition, I simply love the challenge, working under stress, striving for the best result that day in that arrangement, it is so much fun. Especially in competition, having the idea, drawing it, thinking of a technique, colour, proportions, materials and in the end, to see the final arrangement – did the idea in my head work out, did I succeed and so on. I love the mood at competitions, we are all so focused but still very good friends and colleagues.

 I travel a lot teaching, doing shows, workshops or demonstrations, and I like Scandinavian floristry the most. I find excellent florists in every country who I admire, but I always turn back to the simplicity in our style. We work with a lot of respect for each flower and material we use in an arrangement, show it at its best always.

 My floristry is natural, full of harmony, joyful, respectful, living, simple, using a lot of all the material we have just outside the door. Working with materials from the beginning to the end, and using the whole material, from the root to the top.

 I have my own company – called ‘flower and design’, where I offer private people, companies and colleagues/florists all we do in our work, bridal bouquets, weddings, events, classes, demonstrations, workshops, shows etc.

 Competitions:
  • Gold – Danish Region Championship 2012
  • Gold – Danish Champion 2012
  • Gold – International Master Championship 2013
  • Silver – Danish Championship 2014
  • Silver – Huis Ten Bosch Flower and Garden Show, Nagasaki – Japan 2015


Since 2015, it is one of the 'Master Florist' that is part of the FLOOS project and one of the designers who publishes her works in the book The Crafter's Secret. vol 01 (2016)
