Jens Jakobsen

The first time when Siyuan saw Jens' brilliant work was on a wedding dress programme on Channel 4, then she discovered his at Chelsea Flower Show 

Jens was born and brought up in the countryside on the fairytale island Fyn. Where the fairytale writer HC Andersen was from in Denmark.

He has been working in the flower world as a Master Florist in several different countries for over 25 years. To him, flowers are a never ending story, filled with all the emotions: joy, happiness and sorrow. He is truly alive when amongst nature, the very presence of flowers is enough to inspire him.

"As a child I could barely wait for the first Snowdrops to arrive. They possess an exquisite simplicity that is the peak of sophistication. It was always hard to wait for them to be strong enough to cut and bring indoors. After only a couple of days, their beauty fleeting, I would want a lasting memory of that precious moment, so in my favourite book I would press them to be rediscovered again. My passion for nature began there, and the understanding that harmony can be created from surprising contrasts involving forms and architectural shapes."
