Back to Business

Botanique at the Richard Randall Gallery, Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens is over for another 6 months but I am already looking forward to the December event. Lots of beautiful botanically inspired creations. I am very pleased with the sales and feedback on my items, and I am full of enthusiasm again. Of course I purchased as well, and this now adorns my wall - love it.


It is three botanically inspired prints on paper - eucalypt, grevillea and beach hibiscus leaves. Here is a closeup of the beach hibiscus print.


It is the work of Panda Bean from Byron Bay who describe their work as "Natural plant dyeing techniques and screen printing applied to natural textiles, paper and wood". Have a look at their website gallery to see the range of stunning prints which adorn scarfs and cushions as well as wall art. 
I really want to find out more about this eco dying and printing - so much to explore so little time.
