Lisa King is featured in Vogue's 8th Anniversary Issue Craft 8.
“My experimentation with flowers and inks started out as a tribute to my mother, whom I lost four years ago. I would regularly visit the flower markets of London and Bangkok, buying and experimenting with flowers as a way of honouring her, which then developed into prints across my scarf collections.”
By manipulating, deconstructing and rearranging flowers, Lisa’s floral portraits and prints push the traditions of floristry, question the human definition of beauty and the quest for perfection in creative design.
These five hanging prints are from Lisa’s series ENGLISH GARDEN, and were inspired by the wildflowers and weeds foraged on her daily walks during lockdown in March last year.
From dandelions and daises, to elderflower and irises, the prints celebrate and elevate the simple beauty of sometimes overlooked flowers of English flora and fauna.
