Pressed Fern Leaf Illustrations by Helen Ahpornsiri

Helen Ahpornsiri creates delicate illustrations of all sorts of animals and birds from pressed fern, flowers and leaves from her studio in East Sussex. The fern used by the artist is either grown by her or sourced from around the UK. Each piece of leaf is pressed for at least a month. It is then hand cut into tiny shapes and meticulously arranged to create intricate creatures and objects. 

You can see more of her work on Facebook and Instagram. She has an online store where she sells art prints, greeting cards, notepads, and tote bags based on her original artwork. To learn more about the artist's work watch the short video below.
