Clare's love of flowers grew from her English countryside roots and hours spent as a child "helping" her parents tend to their garden. Fast forward a good few years and following a 15 year career in Television Production Clare arrived in Los Angeles, California. Smith & Lily was born out of a passion for flowers, seasonality and design. Nowadays Clare works from her private studio in Sherman Oaks designing English garden-inspired custom bouquets, flowers for events and collaborating with brands and local businesses. 

Side note: Smith is Clare's mum's maiden name and Lily is her daughter's name.
