“What a special treat it was to spend a day with Deb, in her studio, adventuring in to new and exciting print techniques. Deb is an incredibly interesting and talented artist/teacher/singer and she creates a very open, fun and friendly environment in which to experiment. It was a privilege to share the day with her, sample her home grown produce at lunch and to come away from the day feeling richer for the whole experience. How good was she? Brilliant!” — Marion Horton

About Deborah Wace - botanical artist Hobart, Tasmania

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.
