I'm Alicia, an artist and photographer, who calls Cornwall home.

Portrait of me, in my studio 2024. Photograph taken by me. 

My current creative calling is the process of botanical monoprinting - where I pick, press and print with beautiful foliage I find on my walks. This has been my art practice for almost two years now, with lots of trial and error along the way. I find it so therapeutic, a calling, that brings both me and hopefully my audience, closer to nature. 

Alicia says : ''I intend to bring to my audience a glimpse of the shapes and detail within the world of botany and in turn encourage others to look closer into nature. I’d hope the botanical prints highlight not only their intricacy but their importance in the role of being fundamental in the survival of a healthy planet. I hope my practice brings an appreciation to the beauty of the botanical kingdom especially overlooked wildflowers and plants that are often disregarded for being weeds when actually they are such important habitats for wildlife''

The Process //

My practice is centred around the act of walking, foraging for plants along the way. Sometimes with intent for specific species and sometimes without any intentions at all. The walk becomes part of the art, part of the theaputic act of being in nature and slowing down.

The plants that I find on the way are pressed and logged ready to be printed back in the studio. My process involves inking the plants and using them like you would a stamp. The inked surface is placed facing up with my desired paper carefully placed on top. It then goes through my makeshift etching press - a manual cold pressed laminator, which is essentially two rubber rollers and a cranking handle.The term I use to describe my work is  'botanical monoprinting' mono meaning one - as although a stamp would create multiple of the same print (like an edition) I can only create one individual print due to the delicacy of the leaf or flower. Each time I print with the same specimen I am building up layers of ink and therefore changing the amount of detail that'll come through in a print. Some plants that are too dry will crisp and not survive the pressure of the print. Some plants won't even survive the inking stage. It's a very fiddly process and one that can't be replicated over and over again, therefore my works are 1/1.
