"I am aware that this expressive way is new, that I'm giving the first footprints on it, but that it will have a long run. As Eastern cultures have for centuries, florists and all lovers of flowers in the West are seeing flowers and the natural in its most intimate aspect, as something that unites us to the field, that tells us things that fall into the depths of us, and which in addition are new words, the other brush strokes to express ourselves, communicate and share. “A castle full of flowers” is a floral adventure, a new perspective of working with flowers and the secret world of flowers."
