Hi Lilla and the studio ladies,
I recently was on the Flow Magazine blog! They made a cute animation of my fruit tutorial and did a little interview with me. :)
You can read the interview here: http://www.flowmagazine.com/things-we-do/tutorial-flora-waycott.html and watch below for the animation.
Have a lovely week!

This photo contains my all-time favorite object in my office: the letters that don’t quite spell out my name (there’s no “L” here since my name is Noël).
Left to right: aluminum letters that spell out “five,” our family’s lucky number; ceramic llamas beautifully crafted by Rachel Levit, one of my former students; Anthropologie deer vase from one of my daughters; another beautifully crafted ceramic yoga girl done by Leah Goren, another former student of mine; a teeny tiny teardrop terrarium from a family friend.

Read the full article on Zoe here.
She left us with a few points that summarize her advice on how to answer a creative brief:
1. Try to limit your research time and look in other places than online.
2. Ask the client lots of questions – don’t be afraid! They are usually so nice and helpful!
3. Don’t send your work until you are 100% happy with it – do your best work each time!
4. Social media – instagram, pinterest, blog…..clients will find you!
Flora shared with us a little bit about her creative process as well…
She always starts a piece in pencil on paper.
