This is the most stunning book I have seen for some time with every page I turned ( I have seen a pre release) I gasped at the beauty of what Lucy creates and this book will be taking centre stage on my coffee table the minute it arrives and it is already inspiring me to create some exciting new projects!
In The Flower Hunter, Lucy Hunter takes us on an inspirational journey through a year in her garden and artist’s studio set among the mountains of North Wales.
Lucy's evocative, gently humorous words accompany her glorious photographs and exquisite floral arrangements, as she encourages the reader to marvel at the intricate cycles of the natural world, develop their own innate creativity, and to look for beauty in the everyday.
Her garden provides the raw materials for Lucy's floral artistry - breathtaking naturalistic arrangements with all the painterly beauty and flourish of a Dutch still life.
Simple projects accompany Lucy's text, from drying garden flowers for an autumnal wreath to making your own journals and natural dyes to assembling lavish arrangements that showcase the voluptuous beauty of garden roses. Lucy believes that we all have a creative voice buried deep within. The Flower Hunter will encourage you to find your own creativity and help it to blossom.
Lucy Hunter has a Fine Art BA (Hons) degree and over 20 years' experience working as an award-winning landscape designer, floral artist, and self-taught photographer. Passionate about her garden and the natural landscape, Lucy is constantly exploring ways to soften the boundaries between inside and out, capturing transitory shifts in nature and the seasons. Lucy knows what plants work together, the soil conditions they need to thrive and understands how composition, form, texture and scale work to create a standout garden.
Lucy holds workshops across the world on floral design, composing the perfect image, and finding your creative voice and can be found on Instagram @lucytheflowerhunter. She lives in North Wales, UK with her husband, teenager, and two dogs.
