Collection: Floragraphica

Floragraphica started as a passion project for Elise Catterall.  While she was working as a naturopath she had a burning desire to make a beautiful book on flowering herbal medicines.  That led her to study photography so that she could take my own images of the herbs.

Now she shoot bouquets all year round, covering Sydney and surrounding suburbs, and she also shoots flowers of her own choosing to make artworks to sell nationally and internationally. 

She has been part of exhibitions at Hazelhurst Art Centre (In Our Nature), at Creative Frames (Buds to Beaches), Fine Print Co (Elise Catterall), and at The Other Art Fair, Sydney. 

As part of the $110 million refurbishment of the iconic luxury InterContinental Sydney hotel, completed in September 2022, nearly 600 artworks were installed in the rooms and suites and corridors. The artworks predominantly featured southern hemisphere native flora including banksia, eucalyptus, protea and others

Floragraphica takes up most of her time (other than my kids!), but she also does a fair bit of freelance photography and writing. She draws on her studies and qualifications (Master of Public Health, Bachelor of Health Science) for much of her writing, and also writes about environmental issues and has been a contributor (words and pictures) for Planet Ark. 

Her greatest wish is that Floragraphica can be a vehicle to celebrate and appreciate nature, because it needs to be celebrated and cherished now more than ever.
