Founder and Creative Director
Born in Melbourne, Kai's early source of inspiration and love for flowers came from her fathers green finger and garden in her childhood home, as well as her mothers passion for fresh cut flowers in the house.
Memories of David Austin roses and bunches of lavander surrounding her front door, to bouquets of freesias and lilys on the kitchen island saw a constant theme of fresh flowers through her earlier years. Her Latvian heritage also encouraged flowers to be celebrated for all occasions, from birthdays, anniversaries and graduations.
It wasn't until she moved to London that she considered a career in floristry. Often known for her spontaneous nature, Kai booked into a traditional floristry course in Covent Garden overnight and dove head first into the world of Floristry. Seen with a rebellious attitude to her floristry course, she was often criticised for her "messy" and non traditional creations. Upon graduating, she moved to New York and freelanced for the city's top tier designers. This is where she saw full creative freedom, and developed her unique style.
Two years later, Kai returned to London and eventually started My Lady Garden out of her spare bedroom.
