'Frankie & Flora' has flourished from an obsession with daily creations, adoration for flora and a love for botanicals.
With a Bachelor of Media Arts degree majoring in Fine Arts ticked off the list, alongside a Diploma of Interior Design and a few busy years of floristry, the natural move was to combine all passions in to one.
‘Frankie & Flora’ has only been up and running since September 2018 and has already sprouted more local support than I ever thought possible. Firstly I’ll start with the business name, I'm commonly being mistaken for Frankie although really the name is drawn from Frankie my Pug pup. Often forming a crowd where ever she goes, Frankie is soon becoming a mini celeb to look out for at the markets.
Frankie & Flora is proving to be my most exciting challenge yet; such an enjoyable concept, which still seems too surreal to be my career. Traveling throughout this beautiful country while meeting inspiring creatives as we go. There are amazing local markets throughout New Zealand and I'm so stoked to be a part of a community of like minded, down to earth, influential creators.
This little gallery/floral studio holds a collection of art, flowers and botanicals; grab a pre made bunch or select your desired stems and I’ll make a bouquet for you on the spot.
Every day holds a different challenge, the constant support, kind comments from lovely locals and encouragement from returning customers makes ‘Frankie & Flora’ so incredibly rewarding.
Thanks for stopping by, have a look at the 'where' section to see our next market destination.
