''Wood Anemone 2'' is a botanical monoprint, created by hand, this print is one of a kind. This print has been created by printing directly with the pressed flowers. A ghost monoprint is the second print in my three-step process, here the plant has been removed from the inking plate. Then that plate is printed, creating this slightly grainy piece. 

  • Wood Anemone, Anemonoides nemorosa.
  • A4 original piece, handprinted.
  • Fabriano Rosaspina paper, 285gsm. 60% cotton. 5x7 inch plate size.
  • Brown, lightish ink. Soy based.

Wood Anemones are an early spring-time flowering plant, they have white petals and are a member of the buttercup family. They can be seen growing in mature woodlands, hedgerows and meadows. The beautiful star-shaped flowers are an indicator of ancient woodlands. 

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.
