Botanical Wall Paintings Feature Found Elements

March 16, 2011 by

Kate Hill Cantrill’s botanical wall “painting” was a favorite feature at our Fall installation for the Shippan Designer Show House’s Creative Garden Retreat.

Cantrill incorporates various natural elements into her assemblages, many of which are found on New York beaches and in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn, where she lives. In her framed botanical arrangements, she incorporates mosses, twisted sticks, bark, fungus, dried elements and low water succulents.

The plants, which have roots and are held in soil, require very little maintenance.

For this collection of living wall art, Cantrill teamed-up with woodworker and frame-maker, Blair Waldmann, who created the frames.

If you are in the Brooklyn, New York area on Wednesday, March 16, visit her artist reception and wine tasting:
