Tell us a little about the origins of Ms. Murphy Flowers.
I always had a love of flowers, so when I had the opportunity to work in a florist a few years ago it made me fall even more in love with them. I went on to study floristry and from that grew, Ms. Murphy Flowers.

Describe your creative process. 
It usually starts with one concept and bleeds into many more. I’m one of those people who wakes up in the middle of the night with an idea and then I can’t sleep because I’m bursting to do it. I’ve always loved the harsh industrial look against rich greenery. When I started playing around with concrete, I thought how great it would be to have it hanging rather than sitting on your table. Now I’m making pots with extra material in the bottom as a point of interest. it all just flows.

What inspires you the most? 
Anything can give you inspiration if you look at it properly. But if I have to choose, it would definitely be texture. On clothing, flowers, plants many many things. These all inspire you to use them in different ways and pair them up differently.
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers. 
What are your ultimate dreams for Ms. Murphy Flowers? 
Ultimately I just want Ms. Murphy Flowers to keep going in the direction it’s going. I’m lucky enough to be involved with many different elements and ideas. That’s all I want.
What will will we find from Ms. Murphy Flowers at our October Bend and Snap Market?
You will find different varieties of concrete pots, hanging pots, terrariums, the use of glass against concrete and many more. I want it to be a feast for your eyes!
