|Birgitta's botanical prints seem to be very natural, but they
are far from being simple copies of nature.|
Unpretentious at first glance, her prints reveal themselves as carefully arranged, fantastical compositions.
Her work with flowers is so far the most challenging technical task for this experienced print maker because their delicate structures often fall apart at the first touch of the printing ink.
Then they have to be recomposed as a complex collage, petal by petal and leaf by leaf.
Playing with different shades of grey, she skillfully combines them to create depth and space, constructing a giant puzzle and an inventive patience game.
