Australian Native Plants



When I moved to Australia, I very quickly fell in love with the local flora. It never failed to make me smile. Eucalyptus, banksias, melaleucas - all very exotic. As a lover of photography, I started taking pictures of everything...


Gum Tree / Eucalyptus flower / Australia

With each new plant, grew my interest in exploring new fragrances, names, curiosities, medicinal uses and their relationship with the ecosystem. That's how I started to discover the colors, flavors and aromas of Australia...

By understanding the local flora, I came to better understand the relationships between plants, animals, climate, geography, native peoples and even local history. I learned about the children's characters (Snugglepot & Cuddlepie), about Aboriginal medicine and about European colonization. Without realizing it, all this knowledge made me create deeper "roots" in Australia...
