Hi, I’m Hürriyet, a floral designer and floral photographer.
I’m a born and raised Berliner, with New York in my heart and Turkish heritage. My story is not that of an eternal child of nature but that of an ever-curious explorer. I went out to see the world after school and found floral design on my path – thousands of kilometres away from home, across the Atlantic. What I happened to discover is an exquisite craft that allows me to work with one of the most wonderful raw materials you can imagine. Amidst myriads of fragrances and delicate or bold blossoms, every day my mind and my hands get to create pieces of art. Floral design to me is the perfect union of manual labor and generating the most beautiful experiences out of my imagination.
In New York’s demanding but creatively flourishing event industry, I refined my craft for over ten years. Then I found my way back home: Berlin. Here I founded Botanic Art.
The magic of working with flowers is that any piece or installation I create, is ephemeral. Through photography I found a way to preserve each piece I create – any floral designer knows about those countless rushed cell phone pictures we usually take. Through photography I am able to elevate a physical floral installation into an eternal print on a wall.
Until today I keep exploring new ways to work with flowers, new forms of working with my material, new way of realizing beautiful installations and magical event design. I’m an eternal optimist and love finding creative solutions. I love working with clients that come with visions and I love a good creative challenge.
