Anne Mckenzie Botanic Calligraphic Art

Rich autumn colours of russet gold, burnt orange, pumpkin, mellowed alizarin, warm umber and green ochre on handmade Hansarashi Kozo paper

 

 

Painted in two of the sanctuary spaces of London - Kew Gardens and Hampstead Heath - my banners are made in moments of savouring the seasons.  The calligraphic brushstrokes and resonant colours combine with the quality and character of Japanese papers to reflect botanic beauty.  Pieces of calm nature meditation to add to your interior.
