Aleka Artemis Munroe has developed a technique of botanical pounding, in which she places live plant material on watercolor paper, covers it, then pounds the flora using a hammer, imprinting their pigments permanently into the paper. Next she delineates the composition with archival black or gold art pen. Aleka Artemis creates commissioned works of all sizes for clients. Initial inquiries may be made by email.
She creates original framed, unframed & matted, botanical pounded art at different price points, based on the time to create and frame quality.
Nature is Aleka’s partner in Botanical Pounding. Not every beautiful flower results in beautiful imprinted pigments. We discover together.
