We were contacted by Marie's daughter to create an artwork which would be a surprise gift for Christmas. Marie's garden (located in the inner east of Melbourne) is her pride and joy, and we had the delightful task of exploring it to seek inspiration for the artwork. We spent an hour or so amongst the trees, picking the most beautiful and interesting leaves, seeds and flowers we could find. We then took our haul straight back to our studio when it was still fresh. The next few hours were spent painstakingly arranging the smallest parts of leaves and petals into patterns using tweezers, which was then photographed.
We loved hearing how much Marie loved it once she had received the artwork. What a special thing to know we had made a new part of her garden that will be beautiful no matter what season ;)
