The Forest Collection New

Forest Collection

A little about FOREST - During the Spring of 2021, due to lockdown unable to visit museums and travel for inspiration, Vanessa spent many hours experimenting with the art of potato printing, carving and then hand printing more and more intricate and delicate shapes, and exploring the interplay between negative and positive spaces.

 “The flawless and fascinating shapes of ferns have captivated me since I was a child when walking through forests and woods, I collected fern fronds and took them home to press and draw, being endlessly fascinated by their forms; sometimes symmetrical and other times not.
