Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Nadieh Baltus, I’m 27 years old and I live in Maastricht. About 2 years ago, I went outside of my comfort zone and followed my long-standing dream of working with flowers. This was quite a turnaround for me as I’m not originally from the flower industry, but the fashion industry. All the knowledge and techniques I use on a daily basis were taught to me by myself. And thus, slowly but surely, I turned my passion into my craft which grew out to Studio Balt.
What does your day usually look like?
I’m self-employed which means I do everything within the company. Because of this, every day is different. One day I’m working on a large project remotely, the other day I’m sweeping the floor of my studio and cleaning the buckets. The only constant factor of my work is not having enough hours, haha.
