The Botanist



I worked on these collage pieces a while back, and was thinking of selling them in sets they do look nice together in a grouping, each one was inspired by Nature Studies, Forest Walks, collecting bits of natures gifts found on walks. The Botanist was created after watching Miss Potter, one of my favorite movies that I could watch over and over, her interest in Nature and Countryside is shown so beautifully through her little white books.



The English Fairy collage was made with the same creative mood, a Victorian Naturalist adorned with glittery fairy wings, heading out for a walk to the fields to look for specimens to study and display, to remind her of the elements of nature found close to home.

  1. You're right . Nature has much to offer us. Infact, I find it very rewarding to bring something home after a nature walk...mother nature is artist supreme.

  2. The Botany theme is great! I really enjoy Miss Potter as well, although I've only watched it once.
    Lovely collages.
