“Meet the dynamic trio behind CoralBloom Studio! Led by founder Michelle, a scientist-turned-designer with a PhD in Botany and Microbiology, who collaborates with her mom Ann, a botanical artist, and sister Megan, a conservation ecologist and scientific illustrator. Ann and Megan bring to life the mesmerizing details of South Africa’s fauna and flora through life-size scientific watercolor artworks, while Michelle transforms them into unique designs and patterns. Together, this close-knit team have developed a signature style that has earned recognition from leading décor, design, and lifestyle brands in South Africa and beyond.
Their vision is to create functional art products that can be seamlessly incorporated into everyday life. They draw their inspiration from their deep connection with nature, which was instilled during family holidays where they spent time exploring the rock pools, mountains, and veld surrounding the village of Cape Infanta in the Western Cape. As a team, they are continuously creating and expanding their collection of art and designs to celebrate and showcase the exquisite beauty of South Africa’s indigenous fauna and flora. Their passion for nature and design fuels their creativity, and they bring this energy to every project they take on.”
