Flowers became my instrument to express myself.

Emely van Heesch-Smith - Floral Artist


Growing up, when doing art, I was always drawing nature, and very often forests. I’ve always loved the idea of using nature to celebrate nature, and this is what I wanted to do differently in the industry.

Through my studies in fashion design, I made use of space and design to really tell a story and invite the viewer into an experience. As an apprentice to the internationally acclaimed florist Zita Elze, I learnt the subtle artistry of allowing flowers to speak their own unique expression. In this way, my work is art and always with the same objective; to celebrate nature.

Today, celebrating nature has taken a new turn. I am deeply passionate about leaving a green footprint and on showcasing the local flora that surrounds us every day.

From my 26 years working in hospitality as a florist & textile supplier, I am deeply driven to consult hotels and lodges in how to operate in a more sustainable way, using less waste, saving budgets, and rehabilitating the environment.

“I am a pioneer within an old-thinking world, but this only inspires me more; to guide hospitality towards guest attraction that is differentiated from the rest.”


Allow me to transform your property’s guest experience into a celebration of your property’s natural surroundings whilst still creating mesmerizing allure, attraction and talkability.
