What Does Emanuela Like to Do Besides Floral Art?

Emanuela has to admit that her biggest hobby still is floral art, to get inspired by nature surrounded by family is the second best thing. And traveling is too. She loves to travel and get to see the insides of other famous floral designers. Or just get captured by beautiful flowers in fields or special native plants in other countries.  

Emanuela Araújo Finds Every Idea in Nature

Nature serves as an endless wellspring of inspiration for floral designers worldwide. Also for Emanuela:

"Its captivating beauty, intricate patterns, and diverse textures offer a rich palette for creativity. The ever-changing seasons, with their vibrant colors and delicate transitions, provide a constant source of fresh ideas. From the graceful curve of a petal to the symphony of colors in a garden, nature's elegance ignites my imagination."
