Our founder ~ Michelle has a background in botany (PhD Botany and microbiology) and is a self-taught artist and designer. A hobby of painting and turning reclaimed copper into jewelry evolved into a full-time passion called CoralBloom.
Our artists ~ Ann C. Jooste is a botanical artist living in the picturesque coastal town of Cape Infanta. Each artwork is meticulously drawn and painted by hand based on photos in the veld and live models from her garden.
Megan L. Jooste is a conservation ecologist (BSc Honours) and freelance artist. She uses her scientific knowledge and strong graphic illustration style to meticulously capture each subject.
Nico is our display designer and carpenter ~ creating all the exquisite custom-made and branded CoralBloom stands and exhibition displays. With absolute precision he cuts and polishes the reclaimed metals for our elegant handmade jewelry range.
We have big dreams and exciting plans for the future and we hope that you will follow us along on this colourful journey!
