Sage Allium by Amanda Ross

Amanda Ross is known for her exquisitely detailed botanical prints. She produces images of extraordinary life-like quality. Inspired by the British countryside each piece is hand printed using a technique developed by the artist. Every botanical image is chosen carefully. Using inks and a variety of templates made from plant cuttings Amanda transfers these images onto fabrics. Each print is an original and cannot be repeated exactly. This picture features an allium, salad burnet leaves, a small alpine leaf, and a silverleaf. The picture is mounted on white board with a bevelled aperture, ready to frame. This original piece cannot be replicated but other pieces can be made to match if more than one is required. Mount size 12 x 16 inches (30cm x 40cm approx.) Print size 4 x 5 inches (10cm x 13cm approx.)
