Hi there! I’m Karen, principal florist, business operator, cat lover, lolly addict, and petal perfectionist.
This biz of blooms began late 2012, after working in the specialised health industry for more than a decade, I could no longer resist the pull of a creative passion to combine two things that make the eyes sparkle and heart glow...
the beauty of flowers & true love!
After graduating in the accredited trade of floristry, a garage was cleaned out, a floral fridge was moved in and Twillery was born! Many years and many weddings later, the garage has been replaced with a dedicated studio where I flower and flounce, meet happy in-love couples for friendly floral chats, curate dreams of delight in detailed floral design, and admittedly spend way too much time listening to Spotify and downing gallons of coffee (as much in my veins as floristry).
Studying under internationally and nationally recognized leaders of the floral industry, and winning 3rd place of ABIA's 2018 WA floral design awards my passion for petals continually blooms each year.
In case you were wondering (or perhaps even an afore mention, my favourite flower is the dianthus…expect to see these when you book your blooms with Twillery…I love LOVE those frilly delights!
I’m a typical Virgo with back up plans of back up plans because I do everything possible to ensure a plan comes together ( A-Team fans rejoice!). After participating in the 2017 World's Greatest Shave (a not-for-profit fund-raising event to find a cure for blood cancers, providing support to both the family of those diagnosed and those amazing peeps fighting their illness) I can firmly state I'm an avid fan of the 'short back and sides' and will probably only grow these wild locks again to shave it once more for such an amazing cause.
I adore pasta (maybe too much) and all things Italian. My all-time favourite song is Hall & Oats “I can’t go for that” …. nooooo no can do…. and I'm a repeat offender of The Princess Bride quotes. I’ve dual citizenship of Australia & France (but limited to only being able to profess my hunger, general cheekiness & ‘stop that’ in the latter) & my feline companion Lillian has been equal parts family and flower foe for the past 19 years. I'm a little crazy at Christmas with the tinsel, the lights, the carols, the manger, the star and the tree. Oh and I talk a lot…like a lot a lot, but when it’s time to eat you can hear a pin roll.
I love what I do, and I love being able to do what I do for you, the lovers of true romance & beautiful blooms!
I’m so looking forward to hearing from you and making your dream day flowers a reality for you and your beloved.
