My Story

Behind the bouquet.jpg

A self confessed (messy) creative, colour enthusiast and texture junkie. I have been passionate about flowers for as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until I trained in London and started work for Wild at Heart that I realised the creative scope and immense potential the industry holds.

Not one to follow a set script in my design, I love to work with what is on offer seasonally and arrange following my instincts. With nature as my supplier I am at the very whim of its creations, there is no such thing as a flower defect in my eyes! I thrive on the unusual, creating large installations in original locations is a highlight for me.

My inspiration comes from the little treasures that can be found in N.Z gardens such as seedpods, berries, flowers,  fruits, twigs, moss etc.  By incorporating these into my designs you can ensure a unique and truly Lushka creation. It is a mission of mine to to be as sustainable as possible, using largely local suppliers with an emphasis on N.Z flora and fauna only not imported. Lushka is inspired by a close friend Kushla, whose radiance and beauty will forever influence the way I create.
