Sarah is known for her airy, bountiful and vibrant mix of colours in her floral designs. Her works have been featured in magazines as well as numerous wedding websites, newspapers and photo shoots. To advocate the art of floral arrangement, Sarah shares her flower knowledge and experience through hands-on workshops that focus on giving in-depth tutelage while encouraging students to investigate and develop their own signature styles.
