Heidi and I worked together to determine how we could best represent her creative vision and tell the story of her ethos using imagery and plants. We spent several hours together gathering wild herbs and edible weeds for use in this project. The overlaying illustrative elements allowed me to weave in a human touch, a connection to Heidi’s practice and knowledge, a link to wild-crafting & foraging and an association with traditional botanical drawings. This project was a beautiful opportunity to work with plant life and appreciate the marvels of nature’s detail.
