Description

Inspired by the legacy of plant explorers; JD Hooker was Director of Kew Gardens in London and established the glass Plant Houses that brought together plants from all over the world. These jungles indoors and their history inspired this work.  Those who visit the Plant houses from around the world and schools continue to be inspired by them and the collection of plants discovered and brought there by intrepid plant explorers – just as I was inspired to make this artwork.
