Anneke Kearny

Anneke’s passion for indigenous plants developed gradually through spending many hours photographing them in Kirstenbosch and while hiking in the wild. In addition to spending as much time as possible in the great outdoors, studying and photographing wild flowers, she uses her own garden to experiment extensively with indigenous plants.

Anneke Kearny worked as a radiographer both locally and abroad until 1995 when she decided to use her hobby, photography, to earn an income. She assembled a portfolio and contacted anybody who had anything to do with photographs and publishing. Her first picture was published in a woman’s magazine in 1997, and since then her photographs have graced the pages of most local magazines. The Botanical Society used her photographs for their official calendar for 2002. The calendar was then continued annually as Flowers of South Africa, sold country wide and much sought after by locals and tourists alike. A Cats and Kittens calendar, first published in 2003, has also become a popular gift.

Ansia Kohrs

For Ansia Kohrs being creative has always been part of her being. Experiencing beauty in any form, sound or colour leads to the germination of ideas that are nurtured and turned into something tactile, whether by means of fabric, organic means, paint or something edible.

She has always found flowers irresistible, but her real love and appreciation of their beauty developed during her stint as a freelancer with Okasie in Stellenbosch where she was studying food science. Here she learnt that there are no limits when it comes to flower arranging and choosing materials for floral design. She currently uses her creativity and training in her job as product developer for a baking concern. In her free time she does flowers and baking for weddings and special occasions.
