I developed my love of botanical specimens while running my greeting card business, Grail Craft. Working with these fundamental shapes allowed my connection to the natural world to deepen. I marvel at the variety and similarity of natural patterns – the branching denditic pattern in particular, evident in all manner of living things. My best selling card was a botanical specimen (pressed petal, leaf or bud) set on an oval of gold leaf on a cream card. Since then I have used these images and those of feathers in photographic enlargements, petal panels and greeting cards.
Greeting cards to purchase will be forthcoming.
