Gemma, 
NVQ1-2 ANC3, On leave 
Manager, Pickering 
 
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. 
 
In my spare time I love doing my garden and growing flowers and veg from scratch and now looking after my two babies! 
Angelika, 
In house trained, On leave 
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. 
Clare, 
In house trained, 
Florist, Malton 
 
Clare is a recent member of our team who has 15 years of experience. Working as a florist was always my dream job and when I saw a vacancy advertised I decided to take a leap to leave my office job and become a florist. The part of the job I loves the most is making informal and rustic style arrangements using wild flowers from my garden and local area to brighten my home.  
in my spare time i enjoy crafting, upcycling and spending time with friends and family. 
 
I feel luck to work with flowers and be creative everyday.
