I am Anne Lawson, a botanical artist and I am fascinated by natural objects like seed pods, shells and leaves. But most especially feathers. I pick them up, admire them, draw them. I have cupboard full of feathers that are my inspiration. (Lucky that they are as light as a ………!)
In this blog I want to tell you of my artistic life — the artists who inspire me, the textures that I love, my work in progress and finished, the unexpected things I see around me. I am glad that you can join me. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
I live in Melbourne, Australia, a city that I love. I have lived here all my life — indeed on one branch of my family tree I am a 4th generation Melbournian. So, I would also like to show you some of my Melbourne, it’s textures and patterns, the obvious and the hidden, aspects that are off the beaten track.
(As someone very rooted in a place I can just understand how people make the decision to move to a different city or country. But I am in total awe of those who have the courage to flee their homelands and travel hundreds of miles on foot and/or in leaky boats to reach an uncertain future. I wish we treated refugees more humanely when they get here.)
