Product Information

The four seasons are brought to life in art made entirely from pressed flowers and leaves.

Helen Ahpornsiri creates intricate collages using real flora and foliage. Each illustration is made up of hundreds of leaves and flowers which are foraged or grown, then preserved with traditional flower pressing methods. The plants are organised by species or colour before being cut and delicately arranged to form birds, insects and other creatures; all filled with tiny patterns and tangles of plant life. Helen lives in Eastbourne, Sussex, in the UK.
