The Botanical paintings on the home page are a salute to her great, great Grandfather and Botanical painter Adam Forster, whose works are now held in the Australian National Library, Canberra.
Each Botanical painting is expanded into floral and geometric ‘stories’ that are incorporated into textiles for handbag lining, clothing and wallpapers.
