Meet Jacinta, Owner and Creative behind Elsk Botanical 


Growing up in the Hunter Valley on a small hobby farm, Jacinta enjoyed space to roam and plenty of outdoor adventure. Getting her hands dirty in the garden with her mum also inspired Jacinta’s love for plants and her natural skill with plant design and aesthetics.

Jacinta now calls Brisbane home, and when she isn’t styling up a storm for her clients, she and her husband enjoy a busy family life raising their three gorgeous daughters, 14-year-old twins and a 9-year-old, and their fur baby, Buddy.

Although Jacinta’s professional life began as an Occupational Therapist, her natural affinity with design started from a young age, endlessly re-arranging her childhood bedroom and spending dreamy afternoons lost in the styled pages of Home Beautiful.

Throughout her vocational years in the health industry, Jacinta’s personalised approach to work has developed through her role changes. Jacinta always enjoyed being part of a team and working closely with her clients, their families, carers and teachers. Through many work challenges, Jacinta enjoyed big rewards and made some lifelong friends.

Jacinta’s strong love for beauty, creativity and visual transformations led her to change paths towards a more creative and design driven career, establishing Elsk Botanical in 2018. Elsk Botanical has grown and evolved since then, and she now works in the business full-time. Jacinta’s dedication, passion and natural talent has guided her new-found profession and a successful career in the design industry.

Jacinta incorporates a wealth of professional experience and knowledge to her business with her love for creating design solutions and her highly respected professional approach to re-shaping her clients’ environment. Jacinta brings strength to her creative business through her clear understanding of how good, functional design impacts the way her clients use their space and how they want to live in their homes.

“I love the feeling when my client is delighted. Whether it is a small suggestion in a consultation, a design that surprises them, or the reveal of an installation. I LOVE to delight people, it’s pretty special.”

I would love to hear from you, Jacinta xx
