Johanna Oliver resides in Cape Town, South Africa with her husband and two children. Whilst having had a very diverse working career, creativity, in its many forms, has always had a major role in her life.  


Johanna began creating paper flowers in 2018, after discovering them on Pinterest and it quickly evolved from interest to passion.  Her work is bold and expressive with an element of the unexpected and her use of upcycled material in her art provides a fresh and innovative perspective on botanical art. This art form has opened her eyes to the diverseness and beauty of nature and provided a creative outlet to express and showcase that beauty.. Johanna now teaches and shares her love and passion for paper flowers and hopes that her work will inspire and spark the imagination.
