In collaboration with Mental Health Ireland, the artist Yanny Petters is donating this selection of images from her watercolour collection for the design of beautiful greetings cards. There are six different designs in each pack of cards which are blank inside to create your own message.
Yanny Petters has been painting detailed portraits of wild plants since the 1990s. Her love and interest in botanical art stemmed from her work as a sign writer where plant themes were common in decorative design. Her paintings are in a number of important collections including the Dr. Shirley Sherwood Collection at Kew Gardens, London and the Office of Public Works, in Wicklow Mountains National Park and the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin. The purpose of her work is to raise awareness of the wonders of nature and especially the wild plants of Ireland. She was recently awarded a Merit by the Golden Fleece Award.
Yanny is represented by the Olivier Cornet Gallery in Great Denmark Street, Dublin www.oliviercornetgallery.com
