Living Specimen

My lifelong passion for botanicals and living creatures inspired me to create a body of work dedicated to them, that can also make a difference. I focused on endangered species and the habitats they live in. I wanted to create designs that can educate people on species they may never have heard of before. My designs should capture people’s attention and help to start conversations, whether it’s asking what unusual creature is climbing through the branches or, how the print would look as a whole in their home. In my final collection, ‘Living Specimen’, I have combined my drawing skills with experimental processes such as screen printing and mark making, to create eye–catching and interesting prints. I try to capture flora and fauna as realistically as I can, making my own scientific discoveries along the way.
