“This design uses the tiles created for my hearth at Lune River, designed as a grid surrounding images of flora glass slides, inspired by my Botanist father Dr. Nigel Wace’s work. The stories of place and character woven together.” 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.
