Anja Norris was born in the lakeside town of Konstanz, perched on Germany's southern border with Switzerland. Her childhood and school life was one of the countryside and creativity, spending most days horse riding, and enjoying art as a pastime.
That early passion continued, and Anja studied art at Jugendkunstschule Bodenseekreis, before gaining an apprenticeship under local master florist, Christel Guse. After three years, she was fully immersed in the world of floral design, working on a wide range of projects, from weddings to exhibition installations and competitions.
Wider horizons beckoned however, and Anja moved to the UK to pursue a corporate career. This was to prove highly successful, lasting fifteen years before the urge to get back to her roots became overwhelming.
Anja has kept her love of floral design close-by her entire life, and now, with her creative director husband Chris, she is bringing that passion back to life with Derbyshire-based floral design studio Norris Floristry.
