Local artist Claire Armitage says,
"This print illustrates the fine details of teasle, yarrow and burdock seed heads. All my prints are handprinted in small batches, this print is a limited edition of 20 etchings.
This print measures 20 cm by 30 cm.
I create prints to capture a sense of place and invite an immersion into the wild beauty of West Cornwall’s landscape, flora and fauna; with its hidden woodlands, sweeping curves of moorland and coastlines where the Atlantic Ocean meets the skies.
Nestled inland from the coast, I work surrounded by meadows and woodlands. I gain a deep sense of place by revisiting the same locations to draw and paint from direct observation, exploring the colours and fauna as they change with the seasons and time of day. Back in my studio I create detailed botanical studies of the plants I’ve collected. Gradually I develop the compositions and colours for my prints and textiles, often layering the minutia of nature within larger landscapes."
