Lucy can't imagine a life without gardens and flowers. They have been an instrinsic part of her life for as long as she can remember. A childhood spent on the edges of south east London had her yearning for wild open spaces and big skies rather than the confines of the city. So she spent time in the family garden in a tree house constructed by her father out of old bits of wood and a precarious bucket on a string pulley system. 

Her Grandmother gardened.  Big tangled, wild borders of  shaggy shasta daisies and vermillion shirley poppies. Lucy and her sister would spend many a happy hour making 'little gardens' in trays of sand, fascinated by the small 'seasons' captured in a moment.   

At home with her parents she was surrounded with decorative antiques collected and traded with at fairs and auction. She became  fascinated by the objects, their history and stories told. The imperfection of time and natural decay in both manmade and natural elements inform and inspire Lucy's work daily.  

After completing a Fine Arts degree Lucy's fascination for the outdoors drew her into the world of garden design where she could immerse herself into making sense of those big, sometimes chaotic tangles of nature and enjoy on a daily basis those beautiful fleeting moments that only flowers can provide. 

She now divides her time between designing landscapes and bringing that garden inside to create arrangements that celebrate its uninhibited beauty.
