Who are Artisan Funerals?
Artisan Funerals are a family owned business based on the beautiful Gold Coast, Queensland.
I began my journey at a funeral home on the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand in 2001, learning all aspects of funeral care; from care and presentation of loved ones, through to arranging and conducting of funeral services.
Working within this close-knit community gave me a huge appreciation of the diversity of cultural, religious and often budgetary needs which must be met when someone has passed.
I was then based for several years in Auckland, furthering my experience within a varied cultural community.
Now based on the Gold Coast with my husband and young son, I’m bringing some good old “can do” to funeral care here!
Dismayed by the increasing corporatisation of the funeral industry where sales targets and profit margins appear to be the priority, I saw a real need in the community for a more personal approach where the priority is the needs of the family, and/or the wishes of the deceased.
So, my mission in the creation of Artisan Funerals, is to guide people in making beautiful, informed and memorable choices based on their own unique needs.
Whether you are pre-planning for yourself or you are arranging for someone who has just passed away, bring me your thoughts and ideas, your worries and concerns, and together we can create a unique and meaningful farewell. I will be with you every step of the way, right from the very first phone call.
I have hand chosen a very special team to work alongside me to provide every family with the very best of care.
As I’ve said, I’m a big believer in a cuppa and chat, so contact me today – I look forward to meeting with you soon
