Artwork

Environment

Deborah’s work is inspired by and documents the natural vegetation of Tasmania, Australia’s island state.

In the temperate rainforests, open moorlands, and jagged mountain ranges grow some of the world’s strangest, oldest, largest, and most wonderful plants. 

Many of these plants only grow in Tasmania, or have their nearest relatives in South America and New Zealand.

New and exciting ecological discoveries happen constantly in this remote island landscape. 

Collections

Using the time honoured techniques of the world-travelling botanists of centuries past, plant specimens are preserved in plant presses and brought to Deborah’s private Herbarium.

Deborah’s work takes her to botanical gardens, research herbaria, and wild places. All wild material collections are conducted with minimal-impacts and appropriate permits.

 

Designs

These unique individual plants are then arranged, etched inked, pressed, printed, scanned, and transformed through the alchemical process of creative design.

Through careful arrangement and quiet whisperings the plants are placed in exactly the right arrangement to display their hidden characters.

Ink, glass, razor blades, pencils, presses, acids, papers, fabrics, and other tools are used to create the designs..

Creations

Deborah’s artwork is produced by commission and for licensing for specific clients, and also transformed into elegant and practical physical objects.

In addition to decades of experience inking and pressing onto high-quality papers, she is now accessing fine silks and linens to create exquisitely detailed clothing and designs.

All items are limited edition.

Bespoke designs available on request.

Commissions available by special request subject to calendar availability.
