A property lawyer turned floral artist, Karen has been persuing her ultimate dream since deciding on a career change and becoming a Reaseheath student.
Last year’s Level 3 Diploma in Floristry ‘Student of the Year’ after just one year of study, Karen has progressed into Higher Education and is taking every opportunity to expand her knowledge and experience.
A key member of our talented silver medal winning floristry team at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park in 2017, this year Karen will help to represent Reaseheath at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in the Future Florist competition. This is the fourth time that Reaseheath florists have qualified for the prestigious show, earning themselves praise from international judges and encounters with visiting members of the Royal Family.
Apart from her show experiences Karen also immersed herself in a fairytale work experience, helping to create floral designs for international brides in French chateaux!
Knowing that she was keen to expand her practical skills and industry knowledge, Karen’s lecturer suggested she should approach a contact who runs French Flower Style, a booming wedding and events floristry business. Karen was invited to join the company in France for a couple of weeks and helped to deliver and arrange the flowers for prestigious weddings all over the country.
