Botanicals by Sandy brings the beauty of nature inside your home. Sandy and her husband, Doug, have always loved the outdoors – they are both avid hikers and love to canoe. Their dream was to live in the mountains and in 2006, they moved to Georgia from Mississippi and live near the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail.
After thirty-two years in the dental field, Sandy has turned her lifetime love of plants and flowers into a business. In 2011, she was inspired by pressed botanical art and soon began creating her own botanical designs. After giving many pieces as gifts, she was encouraged by friends and family to take it a step further and Botanicals by Sandy was born.
The Printing Process
Sandy grows and collects each botanical specimen, presses them using the traditional heat and pressure method, and artfully arranges and adheres them to acid-free mat board. She then identifies each piece with the common and scientific name in handwritten calligraphy.
To create her glicee prints, a high resolution image is made of the original pressing. It is then printed on fine art media with archival ink ready to hang right out of the box. These keepsake designs capture the natural beauty of each botanical specimen and instantly bring a breath of fresh air to any space in your home.
