Jane Packer has become one of Britain's foremost floral artists. She is renowned for her simple yet stunning designs, epitomized by fresh, unpretentious use of flowers and materials.

From humble beginnings in a small shop in the West End of London, Jane Packer played a key part in changing the view of flower design forever by deconstructing the old methods of flower arranging and approaching the subject with an eye to art, fashion and design.

Interest in her unique flower philosophy led to the opening of the first Jane Packer Flower School in 1990. She has written thirteen books, which have been translated into as many different languages, making her one of the most widely read authors of flower books in the world.

Stores and schools followed in Tokyo, Korea, Hong Kong and of course New York, earning plaudits and accolades, too varied to mention.

Still at the cutting edge and very much involved in the day to day running of her global enterprise, Jane and her team are regularly commissioned by luminaries of the film, fashion and business worlds for all manner of everyday and special occasions, with clients ranging from rock stars to royalty.

"One of my proudest achievements is to visit different parts of the world and to see the essence of my style of design re-created is such a beautiful way." - Jane Packer
