From a studio in North London, Flowers and Foliage was launched in late 2016 by Alexandra Noble.
Alexandra creates bespoke botanic prints - these are abstract compositions of flower and foliage combinations. Each piece is original (edition 1/1) and tailored to the client's choice of petals, stems and branches.
All prints are archival quality giclée and printed on 320gsm Hahnemuele German Etching paper. The inks are a lightfast pigment and resistant to fading.
Each piece will arrive in a protective cardboard postal tube and will require framing or mounting. The standard artwork size is 400 x 400 mm.
Since launching, the work has featured in Brides Magazine, Wedding Flowers Magazine as well as on numerous blogs. Furthermore in March 2017, Flowers and Foliage exhibited at Most Curious Wedding Fair in addition to Chosen Boutique and Vintage Wedding Fair which took place in The Old Truman Brewery and Islington Assembly Hall respectively.
About the artist
"Interested in the transience of nature, I enjoy the thought that my work captures a moment in time when a bouquet or arrangement of flowers is at its best and most bountiful."
After a six year period studying Architecture at Bath University, Alexandra won a national competition to design a feature garden for Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2014 and subsequently worked for 18 months at the studio of Luciano Giubbilei in London.
