I am an Artist/Designer working with trees to create and inspire my artwork. Further information about my work can be found on my website using the link below.
Limited editions: Every artwork is signed at the bottom left-hand corner with a roman numeral, which is also included in the title, for example, ‘monoculture II’. Each time I make a new piece of artwork following the same design I include the ‘edition number’. Every new edition will vary slightly and each seed or leaf used will be unique and of its own colouration.
Longevity: All the materials I collect are sorted and dried before use. Collecting and storing plant materials is a practice that has been carried out for centuries by museums and herbariums and exemplifies how plant materials can be preserved for hundreds of years in a draw or frame, protected from natures elements. The hue and tone of the natural materials may subtly change over time, however, I consider this to be an inherent part of the artwork. Each piece is framed behind UV filtered glass to help minimise this possibility and I recommend not to display the artworks in direct sunlight.
