This work is inspired by the legacy of plant explorers; JD Hooker acted as Director of Kew Gardens in London and established the Plant Houses that brought together plants from all over the world. Those who visit the Plant houses from around the world continue to be inspired by the collection of plants - just as I was inspired to make this artwork. This jewel like piece can be purchased individually. There are three different colours in this series that look beautiful hung together in a group. The artwork is supplied with a hanging frame at the back which enables the artwork to appear asif it is floating on the wall.
