OUR ARTISTS

JOHN ELSTGEEST

'The Circus Director'

 

John Elstgeest has multiple years’ experience in promoting flowers in Europe and Russia. He is specialized in getting people enthusiastic about a product, by not only by giving facts but by telling the story behind the product.

 

With his artistic and charismatic way of storytelling during the show, he even gets the most critical florists positively involved with the products.

JHON KOOPMAN

'Ringmaster'

 

Besides being a husband, a father of three children, a professional Lilygrower, a flower photographer at It Ain’t Photography, a promotional specialist at YourLily and a writer of children's books (Lili want’s to bloom), Jhon likes to be on the stage. His experience as an actor brought him to our FlowerCircus.

 

Being familiar with the flower business and knowing people in the industry, he will be able to inform you and entertain you at the same time. Most of his jokes are edgy, across the line and over more than one border. But hey, what can you expect of a guy who can’t grow up and make up his mind what to do. His official title at Flowercircus is “Ringmaster”. But most of the time he looks more like the clown…

MARK FRANK

'Flower Magician'

 

Mark Frank is a talented designer in the floral industry, based in Hilversum, the Netherlands. Apart from his passion for flowers, he has a passion for confetti. So better watch out when you attend a show front row when the Flower Magician Mark is on stage!

 

His specialisms are floral consulting, product development, floral design and styling for events and exhibitions, and consultancy for the mass retail markets in floral products and marketing strategies. He has been working for over 20 years in the floral industry, on both national and international projects.

MARTIN GROEN

'Flower Magician'

MICHAEL VAN NAMEN

'Flower Magician'

 

Although Michael van Namen is afraid of clowns, he is more than happy to perform in this Circus. He is a very energetic person, with an unbelievable passion for flowers.
