ABOUT THE ARTIST
Catherine Lewis Design is a company based in Cardiff, Wales in the United Kingdom that was started in 2016 by noted English artist Catherine Edwards. The studio was founded for the love of botanicals, illustration and print design.
After working in the US and in London as a noted womenswear print designer for 7 years, Catherine started craving a more creative lifestyle outside of the fashion industry.
"I've always been drawn to florals and plants, and have been collecting vintage botanical books for years. I'd spend any free weekends and evenings drawing," Catherine explains. "It was a trip to Columbia Road Flower Market one weekend, where I bought a bunch of King Protea flowers to draw that really ignited something in me to do this for a living! As soon as I drew that very first Protea illustration I knew!"
Her detailed process takes time. Catherine creates all the illustrations and designs herself. She aims to capture as many details in each flower or foliage as possible. A specimen will be studied closely — ideally she will have it in front of her while drawing to be able to fully appreciate every detail.
Catherine also takes lots of photos of plants so has a huge archive of reference photos that she's built up over the years, thanks to her love for all things plants.
"This part of the process is very traditional, and is purely just me, the plant, a pencil and a pen. That's it. My favorite part."
