Vicki Kerr - 'Floral Alchemy' - 2016

About the artist:

A Sydney based florist for the past 18 years, Vicki Kerr has realised a long term dream of publishing a sublime floral book. Inspired by a Japanese book she came across years ago, European interior magazine Cabana, and her love of simple blooms, standing on their own, she has combined flowers with other luxurious elements  such as fabrics, wallpapers, beautiful vases, surrealist images, botanical illustrations and textured paper stocks. 

Beginning her floristry career in Sydney, she has worked with some well known  florists from  Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, having also owned her florist, she also spent several years as the in house florist for a large private club in Sydney's East. She currently works from a studio in Darlinghurst 

 

A note from Etienne founder Juliet Berry:

"My amazing friend Vicki Kerr has spent the last 3 years writing this glorious book, I am so thrilled and proud to have it in my store. Vicki writes of her book... 'The focus of this book is to show flowers standing on their own.  It is a combination of elements that I believe compliment flowers, and that I love... diverse paper stocks, fabrics, wallpapers, botanical illustrations, vases and sculptures.  In combining all these aspects I hope we have produced something that is beautiful to look at, to have and to give.' This book truly is a work of art."
