Common names include Tanglefoot, Deciduous Beech or Fagus. It is the only native deciduous tree in Tasmania and the only cold climate winter-deciduous tree in Australia. The leaves of this highland delight turn gold and deep red in April/May, only in Tasmania. It is considered a paleoendemic species to Tasmania as macrofossils have been discovered within Oligocene sediments both in Tasmania and Antarctica.
“These leaves were collected from a private Hobart garden with permission.” Deborah Wace

Deborah Wace is a botanical artist, fabric designer and professional printmaker from Tasmania. Through her highly detailed and intimate artwork she creates a window into the botany of Tasmania’s wild and often endangered plant communities including native orchids, rainforest, buttongrass and marine plants.
Deborah’s inspiration for her range is drawn from her extensive, private plant specimen collection, gathered and digitised over 30 years. She combines digital plant images with dry point and mono-print original artwork and etchings, which she layers to create her rich, complex botanical designs on fine fabric, wallpaper and a range of architectural substrates.
She is embedding sustainable plant specimen collection, production and printing processes into her work.
