Beautiful New Botanical Art Prints From Textile Designer Georgie Daphne

From the studio in her mudbrick home in Ringwood, textile designer, painter and illustrator Georgie Daphne paints colourful botanical worlds. Her brilliantly verdant houseplants cascade from terracotta pots and adorn vibrant table settings – creating whimsical, eye-catching arrangements.

Named ‘Plant Gang’, the artist’s new collection depicts joyful, homely moments in lilac, blue, musky pink, green and orange as limited-edition prints, which are on sale now. So cute!

Houseplants can be like pets: a cute and docile friend that makes your space feel immediately warm and comfortable. Instant company!

Plant Gang’ by artist Georgie Daphne is a series of art prints that embodies this feeling. Drawn from seven paintings that she has created over the last year, each print will be limited to 50 editions across five different sizes.

For the paintings themselves, Georgie was drawn towards plants with interesting patterns like pink philodendron or syngonium podophyllum. She scoured the internet for images of her chosen species, and rendered them on canvas in acrylic paint, imagining each one in new colourful contexts.

‘It makes sense that I’m drawn to patterns on plants, since I started out my creative career as a textile designer 13 years ago,’ she says. It also makes sense that her plants are often featured in the home, atop a gingham-covered table or on a ledge beside other planters. So joyful!

The glicee prints are produced on 300gsm cotton paper, which are printed locally. Even the packaging and envelopes are made in Melbourne. We love them!

Georgie’s prints are available on her online store here!
