“When people ask me what I do, and I describe myself as a botanical artist, I think they immediately think I am painting … but my art medium is the actual plant material … I like plants that have a little bit of personality to them and some unique characteristics,” says Anne Thompson. Every year she harvests plants from the “swamps of South Carolina, the gardens of Virginia’s countryside, the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley,” then uses traditional presses to preserve the foliage and flowers in one-of-a-kind compositions.
