Hello! Shalom!

My name is Irit and I am glad you are here! For me that means you are passionate about botanical printing, just like me. 

Spending time outdoors, collecting plants, bundling them, waiting impatiently to open the bundles and to see the results on a fabric, is not just an artificial or technical procedure – it is an integral part of my day-to-day life.  Discovering new ways of printing Nature on fabrics is the way I express myself.

It is a constant and intriguing connection with Nature, a perpetual observation of the world. Small gifts are suddenly revealed, planned or unexpected,  in a constant flow and relation with Nature.

I am lucky that I can devote my life to the research and development of new techniques. I am always inspired to try to find as many combinations as possible between all  these elements in a continual attempt to seize  the beauty that exists in the world.

Thanks to botanical printing I have had the privilege of meeting people, with my same passion: many amazing souls from all over the world who share a love of Nature, a desire to learn and create  and a determination to find the peace of mind that printing can provide. We all share the same breathtaking admiration at the moment of a bundle being opened, still steaming, with the excitement of finding out what traces the plants left on the canvas this time.

It fills me with joy and gratitude to choose Botanical Printing as my way of life  every day anew.

Idan Levy

Hi, my name is Idan and I am a visual artist and a graduate of the Department of Art at The Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.. For quite a few years now, I have also been writing screenplays, directing, filming and editing for television and film. My introduction to the world of botanical printing was working closely with Irit and documenting her work. My work on creating the visual language of presenting her work and transmitting it in the most accurate way to the world of Botanical Prints required a lot of trial and error. But over the years, I have sought in every photography session, beyond the need to best convey the photographic work, to produce a photography that will stand on its own as an artistic photography. When I felt I was succeeding at it, I took on a new challenge: online courses.
In addition to a clear and very informative learning experience, I tried to create for the students the special experience of participating in a private’s onsite workshop. The challenge was to do justice to the aesthetics of the botanical print works and especially to create a course that is also an aesthetic experience that stands on its own. I tried to find a way to convey the depth and character of each and every print, to give each print a life and grasp its uniqueness. My work on these courses has allowed me to sharpen my artistic perception as a visual artist and my skills as a screenwriter, as a director, photographer and editor and together with the knowledge and experience I have gained in creating courses in diverse fields, I am happy to dedicate my time to projects of this type, which are exciting and very interesting to me. You are warmly welcome to visit my Instagram page and contact me for any of your projects.
