In botanical art, showing the true features of plant species is in focus. It can lean towards scientific illustration or towards artistic florals and still lives and the borders can be floating. I aim to stay true to the plant in my own poetical way.

Botanist since childhood, the scientific part is something I love. Details in plants show me relations and differences, a constant and fascinating learning and exploration. All this anchors me in my life here on earth, without it I would feel lost!

Over the years a philosophical approach to life has enriched the scientific me and now, being an artist, all is combined in my way of portraying plants. I look for the gesture in the specific plant, it’s spirit so to speak and having found it, my aim is to show it in my art.
