As florists we draw inspiration for floral design from many sources, art being one of them. Australian artist Sarah Gabriel’s drawings capture the ‘energy’ and ‘spirit’ of her environment in the country, through her distinctive line work and use of pigmented inks.
Sarah’s original works on paper are created from her regionally based working studio in Lauriston, Central Victoria and are distributed to nominated galleries, both interstate and overseas. Sarah prints and hand colours limited edition drypoint etchings and opens her studio for small group workshops in drawing and printmaking.

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarcely see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” – William Blake
