Hi there, my name is Laura Cooke and I'm the owner of Botanic Isles. I started the business 3 years ago whilst I was a waitress at a busy Glasgow restaurant. I would often work 16 hour shifts and once home, I would spend a few hours perfecting my craft before heading to work 8 hours later. With lots of hard work I managed to start my business and move away to the Angus countryside with my two cats - Micky and Mallory - and my partner, fine artist Paul McParland. I started my business aged 23.
Each botanical is carefully hand picked by me from locations all over Scotland and preserved using eco friendly resin. Botanic Isles is stocked in around 120 locations in Scotland, to find a stockist click on the "shop" announcements tab on the page here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/botanicisles/
