Modern Botanical Art, printed from preserved plants, lovingly killed by Amanda.
Amanda Ross makes botanical art with a twist. Her intensely detailed and gently vibrant pieces are printed from the actual plants. A hopeless gardener, she conveys the essence or spirit of places and gardens, using the very things that made them. Her pieces capture a moment, or season of a constantly changing natural environment, places and gardens that grow, change, die and reappear.
Amanda has worked with gardeners and from prestigious gardens, producing pieces specific to them. She has won awards at RHS shows, but still struggles with the houseplants.
