Sarah Horne is an internationally renowned, creative floral artist who has attained three Chelsea Gold medals for Professional Floristry and has also won the prestigious title of Chelsea Florist of the Year 2011. Her floral structures are intensely imaginative and she has produced commissions ranging from intricately flower-woven wedding corsets to a full-sized arbour picnic scene made entirely of flowers - even including the delicate cakes.
Sarah's shop in Royal Leamington Spa has reached the national finals of the UK Flower Shop of the Year four times and her infectious passion for all things floral has led her to demonstrate her artistry all over the world.
With over 35 years immersed in this abundance of flowers and their fragrances, Sarah was inspired to extend her design skills into pen-and-ink botanical illustrations and is now an exhibited artist. While Sarah’s artwork has been influenced by vintage and Victorian botanical engravings, her black and white ink drawings also carry an edge of modernity - creating a wonderfully eclectic result.
Using her illustrations as an impetus, Sarah has now developed a range of gorgeous products for the home called Sarah Horne Botanicals. Her beautiful studies now adorn this stunning new range of chinaware and scented candles all borne from her passion and knowledge of all things floral - fragrance, colour and composition.
