This collection of plant illustrations came about in 2021.
Research has shown that human beings experience physical and mental stress if we don’t spend enough time in nature or surrounded by plants, and they provide us with endless fascination. I am no exception to the rule, I feel huge satisfaction when my plants grow and thrive, and terrible guilt if they don’t survive.
During lockdown, I appreciated my plants even more, and as I studied the leaves of each of them, I started to sketch them. Some of these drawings are also based on dead leaves I collected on hikes around Southern Austria, and brought home with me to draw.
