Hi there, I am Nina and from a small city in Sichuan Province in southwest China.
7 years ago, I turned one of my small bedrooms into a mini studio for natural dyeing and crafting.
At least four years ago, I saw a lot of beautiful eco-print photos and two photos of Irit’s work on Pinterest that I could never forget. It was very hard to find more information due to the limitations of the Internet until I accidentally found Irit’s website last August. I knew, the chance had finally come. Now, I’ve been working on botanical printing for almost 6 months, I´ve learned a lot!
My hometown, which is famous not only for hot pot, pandas and Li Ziqi, provides me with a diverse range of plants. Although the plants in the city are not as rich as in the countryside, I can collect and store them. Also I press flowers and leaves for winter when the fall is coming.
