A POLISH landscape architect from the Staffordshire Moorlands is blossoming with her specialised plant arrangement business.

Karolina Niemczyk, who lives in Leek, is showcasing her Japanese inspired creations at markets in the area.

Karolina, age 29, is a qualified landscape architect.

She gained a degree in landscape architecture from Wroclaw University in Poland and has carried out three years work in this field in Poland with a subsidiary degree in Fine Art.

Karolina is currently seeking work in this field in the UK but, in the meantime, is producing a range of unique craft and gift items.

She currently makes and sells her designs and has booked to showcase her creations at a number of specialised market events in the area including at Buxton and Chesterfield markets, and at the Totally Locally Sunday Supplement event in Leek.

Karolina's designs include Japanese string gardens, plant arrangements in unusual vessels such as computer towers, and fashion jewellery and greeting cards from recycled materials.

She said: "I aim to develop a regular market presence, subject to vacancies, but also would like to sell to quality gift shops and reach the wedding market for florals by contacting wedding venues and perhaps hosting a stall at wedding fairs.

"I am constantly on the lookout for specialised as opposed to general markets in the Staffordshire Peak Park area, Derbyshire and Cheshire."
