Natalie Martin - 'A Year in Bloom' Greeting Cards
Natalie Martin is a bit famous down here in Torquay, Victoria. Well known for her vibrant watercolours of native Australian flora and the landscape it's found. Her most recent explorations have been around the striking beauty and delicacy of our flowers and our connection as humans to them.
This series of cards are from Natalie's 'A Year in Bloom' series, a collection of Australian Native Birth Flowers. Each of the flowers represents a different month and holds its own unique meaning. The series was inspired and adapted from the language of flowers or floriography, popularised in the Victorian era where flowers were used to send secret messages.
