HELLO FLOWER FRIENDS
I'm Rose and I'm a Floral Artist. I'm a creative at heart and am on a journey to create a sustainable business that not only helps provide for my family but also helps you in your life. In 2016 I made a leap and started an online store under the name A Pocketful of Roses. I provide a range of floral art services including: Fresh and Everlasting flower delivery; Wedding work; Pressed Flower Frames; Workshops; Fine Art Floral Prints; Poems; Photo & Crown sessions; and much more. I work from home and pieces are limited as they are hand made by me. These services are available to those in the Illawarra, Wollondilly, Camden LGA and Southern Highlands regions.
After spending many years studying in the health area, I finally graduated with a degree in Health Science (Health Promotion). I have a particular interest in women's health; especially mental health. After graduating, my husband suggested I take a break and gain a creative skill like floristry. So I did... and what better way to promote health than by spreading joy with flowers!
This study confirms that flowers have immediate and long-term emotional health benefits. I think that's pretty neat! I was trained at Pearsons School of Floristry in 2016 and have not looked back. I love my job and being able to increase that delightful hormone oxytocin, by spreading joy with flowers. I hope you get joy from what APR creates and thank you for supporting local and small business.
