I always had a passion for flowers, but it was only later in my life that I integrated my passion and my career. After finishing school I pursued studying law at Wits University. But, then life happened and I had my adorable and much loved twins. They then came first in my life and I decided not to carry on with my law degree.
In between being a mom, I did a Interior Design course and also started to do flower arrangements for friends and family. It was only a hobby then, but with the inspiration and motivation from my friends and family it soon became my profession. I took a few classes, and voila!...I was on my way to being a budding florist and Flowers by Suraya saw the light.
I carried on doing courses to further my knowledge and to stay up to date with current trends. I also had the privilege to visit the Chelsea flower exhibition in London! What an amazing experience and I got so much inspiration. My recent and most memorable course was the Karen Tran masterclass in Cape Town. I learned so many new tricks there to incorporate in my own designs. Definitely a highlight in my florist career.
