In this pattern, I have explored different leaves and flower shapes in an imaginative and abstract way of drawing.
It is an interaction between nature's marvelous shapes and structures and my own inner meditative drawing process that is expressed in the pattern. There is a vibrant and warm palette of colors that pays tribute to nature's rich diversity. I make a virtue of cultivating the slow, hand-drawn and harmonious in an overly hectic world.
"It is often in the slow meditative drawing process that the unexpected happens and an idea, or a dream takes form on the paper”. Danish illustrator and designer Sofie Børsting is based in Copenhagen and graduated from the Danish Design School in 2003. After many years of working in the design industry she finally followed her dream and created an illustrated line of products in 2011. They quickly took off, and are now sold in some of the finest designshops in Scandinavia and aroundthe world. The very detailed artwork is created from a combination of carefully hand drawn botanical elements, collage and gouache. She describes her work as graphic poetry with a hint of fairytale.
