Dianne Strahan’s walks collecting fallen plant matter leave her with a serenity found in no other way. Botanical printing, particularly in book form, is a way for her to archive the plants found in a specific area on a specific day. It also becomes a visual diary of her journey throughout the State. Opening each book and following the embossed shapes of the leaves across the page, inhaling the aroma left by the oils from the plant and admiring the colours on the paper or fabric all take her back to a particular place or time.
Diane has show at the East End Gallery, Beverly and Potions Gallery, and NEXIS galleries in Narrogin.
