About Beth Murphy Botanicals
Being a forever admirer of nature and all it supplies us with, it is no surprise that I was led to work with pressed botanicals as my medium. Flower petals, stems, leaves, grasses even some vegetables make their way into my presses to yield one surprise after the other. I work these amazing colors, shapes and textures into mixed media collages where paints (acrylic or watercolor) and hand printed papers are used to accent the organic beauty. I hope that my works allow you to experience nature in a new way as well as opening up to the use of botanical materials as an art medium.
I currently live in Vermont but was a resident of Highland Park for many years and Riverwoods has always been a community that relates to my work. I’m thrilled to be back (even if virtually!) and hope you continue to enjoy my original collages, cards and prints.
