Botanical Illustration gives me the opportunity to deeply observe and depict the intricacies and visual music of Nature.
We are beginning to view our world through the convenience of digital images instead of perceiving with our own eyes and senses. I paint my experience of plant life without referring to photographs or digital captures.
We are humans, we tell each other what we saw with pigments and paint. That is what I attempt to do now… to describe to you something that perhaps happens just only one time a year… the moment a flower blooms.
Sincerely, Elaine Jek
