My name is Kate Owens and my background is in fine art, photography and writing. I set up Verdley Flowers in 2016 when I started growing cut flowers in my woodland garden in West Sussex. From there Verdley Flowers has rapidly transformed into a successful floral business.
Drawing on my background in art & photography, I create beautiful bouquets and bunches combining flowers and foliage from my garden, the surrounding woods, and the finest bought-in flowers.
The motivation behind my work is to present flowers and floristry as natural, unpredictable, wild and beautiful as opposed to the tame and homogenous flowers often seen on supermarket shelves.
