I make bespoke wooden products, from materials collected whilst working as a gardener; including wooden spoons and shrink pots. All hand carved using an axe and knife, primarily made from birch, willow and cherry.
I am also a content creator, through writing and video creation I hope to encourage underrepresented groups, such as young people, to explore vocational careers.
I come from a creative family who love to garden and enjoy arts and crafts in their spare time. I grew up surrounded by countryside and the life that comes with it but I didn't realise the huge impact the outdoors would have on my life.
I decided to pursue gardening as a career in 2015 when I was 19. I attended Brinsbury campus to study, achieving a Distinction star level 3 diploma in horticulture. During this time I project managed a show garden that achieved a Silver Gilt medal award. I also achieved regional finalist at Young Horticulturist of the Year award.
I discovered the joy of a career in horticulture after a few years of uncertainty. It can be hard to find a career you have passion for but even harder when you cannot or do not wish to follow the much celebrated academic path. The option of studying a vocational skill was always disregarded.
Since I began my career, I have been passionate about encouraging younger people to see that a vocational career can be a viable option for them. The standard route through college or university doesn't always provide skills for every student to have a career they can easily achieve or enjoy.
I also became a Young Hort Ambassador in 2016. A project that also aims to encourage younger people into horticulture.
