Whimsy Petals operates out of a studio
in the beachside suburb of Trigg, Western Australia.
We create wildly romantic, free spirited florals
inspired by colour and in harmony with nature
for your everyday life and celebratory life events.
Sensuous, evocative, wildly romantic, whimsical, ethereal, unstructured, carefree, free spirited,
of the garden.
Flowers seduce, heal, evoke memories, mesmerise, lift moods, give pleasure.
Since time immemorial they’ve weaved and flowed and sashayed their way through the narrative of our lives, accompanying us at times of high emotion.
Flowers are our intrinsic aesthetic,
the incarnation of beauty.
Now more than ever, this is what we need to reconnect with; this fleeting energy of nature that brings such joy to our souls and senses, helping us focus on the here and now in the
most beautiful way.
The ephemeral quality of flowers is a gift,
teaching us to pause and savour the moment.
This moment is all we have.
This is our why.
Social justice and inclusivity;
Compassion and empathy;
Love and connection;
Treating others with respect and dignity;
Authenticity, honesty, integrity;
Supporting and encouraging others;
A deep respect for the natural environment;
I came to floristry quite late.
After many decades working in an office environment (the last 25 running my own bookkeeping/BAS Agent business),
I had a very strong yearning to break free and do something creative
so at the end of 2019 I took some quiet time to reflect
(that beautiful non-linear time between Christmas and New Year)
and floristry kept popping up.
Funny because flowers were never on my radar and my only exposure over the years was to admire
the beautiful gardens of my parents' and grandparents' as my green thumb never developed.
So I stepped outside my comfort zone and enrolled in a TAFE Cert 3 and then followed this with
the Cert 4 Advanced Design Skill Set, finishing at the end of 2021.
I've finally found my passion and it's magical and all-consuming
and has awakened a creativity I didn't think I had.
It gives me so much energy and joy and my hope is to share such breathtaking beauty with you so that
your soul sings too.
you're never too old and it's never too late to jump in and
live the life you've always dreamed of.
