Botanical-Inspired Illustration

During secondary school, I spent a year living in Cambridge, England with my parents. Weekends were passed traveling throughout the UK with my parents: driving through gentle rolling hills, staying at youth hostels in quaint villages, and visiting many of the castles, estates, and English gardens that are seeped in history. Throughout this time, a seed was planted for a deep love of botanicals. I have spent the past couple years refining how I approach botanical illustration, through practice with traditional flora and fauna studies, to more imaginative compositions.

Some of the illustrations featured here are available as cards or prints, which you can browse here on Etsy. My love for botanical-inspired illustrations has crossed into my illustration of tarot, commissioned work, the creation of a card game, and in the future I hope to illustrate my own children’s book.
