Am so enjoying the work of botanical printmaker Angie Lewin, whose output seems to be popping up everywhere right now – in galleries like Bankside, as well as places like Petersham Nurseries and the Garden Museum, where it appears on delightful greeting cards.
Angie lives in Norfolk and says her work is “inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands”.
“Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips,” she says.
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? BBC Homes and Antiques recently dubbed her work part of the ‘the new botanics’. Quite right. It’s so refreshing to see things like teasels and poppy seedheads portrayed in a contemporary way, when garden art so often falls into the staid.
