Key Details:

  • I am an academic expert on ancient gardens and floral design and have been a consultant for the Trust for Thanet Archaeology, Kent, UK, to design a Roman garden. See my gallery page for images of my work.

  • I also trained as a floral designer and hold a design certificate from the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers, London, UK. As an archaeologist and historian, I use experimental archaeological methods and techniques to recreate Greco-Roman crowns, garlands, and wreaths. With care and attention, I make these are authentic to the surviving images and historical accounts.

  • All of my work is as environmentally sustainable as possible, including organic gardening with locally sourced plants, flowers, and vegitation. I only use natural materials in my floral designs, and I do not use plastics or tapes in the mechanics of my work. Even wires are used sparingly.

  • If you want professionalism, authenticity, creativity, and the ability to meet deadlines then please contact me for details.
