BOTANIC ARTS
 
 

Inspiration for this work comes from the long tradition of botanical painting and drawing of  pre-photographic times. Then, botanical illustrations were both of clear scientific value in recording the characteristics of plants, but also objects of aesthetic beauty in their own right.


The images of mostly native-Ontario plants, dragonflies, and butterflies on this site were made using flatbed scanners instead of a camera. A scanner captures a high level of detail that is visible in the final print, and allows the subject to be separated from its background, giving results not unlike traditional botanical illustrations.


Prints are made on acid-free papers with archival inks, then bonded to clear, curved glass trays and sealed for durability and longevity. The pieces are completed with picture wire and are ready to hang on a wall.
