Introducing the Cow Parsley 1, Green Ghost Monoprint.  Delicate and slightly textured looking, this unique and contemporary print has been created from a ghost plate, this is where the leftover ink has been printed with the plant removed. It has a slight grain to it, making it feel like it has a little depth to it. 

  • Cow Parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris. 
  • A4 original piece, handprinted.
  • Fabriano Unica paper, 250 gsm. 50% cotton. 5x7 inch plate size.
  • Green soy based ink. 

Cow Parsley can be seen growing freely alongside the road and in the hedgerows here in the U.K. It’s white lace like flowers are always a joyous sight for me. 

The technique of botanical monoprinting is a slow process, requiring all plants to be pressed for a few weeks prior to printmaking. Each piece is carefully curated by using individual plants, making your artwork totally unique. The plant is inked up evenly and then put through the etching press with my chosen paper, where it presses the plant into the paper leaving an intricate copy of the delicate details.  

This process allows me to slow down, by going on regular foraging walks I can connect with my surroundings. I hope this piece allows you to feel closer to nature and appreciate the smaller details within the world of botany.  

Your print will come with a biodegradable sleeve, backing board and a thoughtful thank you note, all carefully packaged in tissue paper and wrapping paper to ensure its safe arrival.
