From Dr Apatira: “Nature printing is a centuries-old printmaking technique used to create detailed, life-sized images of natural objects, such as plants, for study and art. Ink is directly applied to a freshly picked plant and the plant’s image is then transferred by sandwiching the plant between 2 sheets of paper and then rubbing its surface by hand, capturing a precise and clear print, an impression of life.” Dr Apatira is a plant enthusiast, mixed-media artist, nature photographer, and Internal Medicine Resident at Kaiser San Francisco in CA.
