MEDOWS OF TRANSYLVANIA

Transylvania Florilegium


I am happy to say that, I was one of eight artists selected worldwide, to paint wild flowers growing in the meadows of Transylvania in June 2015. I travelled with highly skilled artist from all around the world including Japan, New Zeland, Ireland and England, to central Romania to prepare illustrations that may be selected for inclusion in Transylvania Florilegium. This project is presently being created under the umbrella of the Prince's School of Traditional Arts, a charitable organization of the Prince of Wales, to record in a permanent way the flora of Transylvania.

Each artist is aimed to paint three plants, recording as much as information in two weeks, if possible even complete them during the trip. So I have worked on 3 amazing species which you can see below. We were looked after well during this time and stayed in the properties of Prince Charles located in lovely Saxon villages.



I have worked on three species, Viburnum vincetoxicum, Galium glaucoma and Cirsium rivale.

All my work has been selected for inclusion in the Transylvania Florilegium presently being created under the umbrella of the Prince of Wales's Foundation Romania to record in a permanent way the flora of Transylvania.
