ABOUT THE MAKER.
Sam Freeman worked for many years in wedding and event styling industry and was the creator and founder of the very first Vintage China Hire Company in the UK and worked on events for many celebs including Sarah Jessica Parker & Elton John, Sam went onto run a vintage photo booth & booth prop hire business and began making unique and quirky headbands to use as photo booth props, but was soon being asked to create flower crowns for brides and chic festivalgoers.
"Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought".
"As a busy business women and mum of two, I find designing and creating these one off flower crowns and hair accessories hugely satisfying and relaxing.
It gives me the opportunity to let my creativity run wild and for my mind to wander free for while.
I grew up in a home filled with old books, art and furniture from the arts and crafts and Art Nouveaux period.
I was given children's books filled with illustrations by the likes of Arthur Rackham, Mabel Lucie Attwell, Kate Greenaway and Walter Crane and spent hours in dusty old book shops, antique fairs and junk shops with my parents.
I was taken to art galleries and introduced to the immensely beautiful works by the Pre Raphaelites and as I grew up, I began to discover and fall in love with the art and images of the 1920's right through to the 60's.
I have a fascination with the glorious floral images on old Victorian greetings cards and by the language and sentiment behind each flower and base a lot of my creations on these .
