Botanical prints on paper. Natural printing technique, or ecoprint.
Sumac leaf, eucalyptus
Dimensions: 30 cm x 40 cm
With Marie-Louise, ivory colour
Each piece is unique, I make it entirely by hand, using a firing process similar to vegetable dyeing which requires preparation for the fabrics (washing and mordanting), to allow the pigments contained in the plants to adhere.
Leaves and flowers, chosen for their shape and colouring power, leave their imprint on fabric or paper.
I mainly use local plants, picked in my garden or along the paths.
