She makes the most vivid and beautiful eco prints I have ever seen.
...and I love her philosophy towards her life and work.

Visit her web site...there is so much more to see

India Flint...index of her work

a sense of place

i am

botanical alchemist & string twiner,

storyteller,

forest wanderer & tumbleweed, stargazer & stitcher,

working traveller, dreamer, writer

and the original discoverer of the eucalyptus ecoprint

...dyeing for a living in the deep south



my work conflates the visual and written poetics of place and memory, using ecologically sustainable contact print processes from plants and found objects together with walking, drawing, assemblage, mending, stitch and text as a means of mapping country, recoding and recording responses to landscape - working with cloth, paper, stone, windfall biological material, water, minerals, bones, the discarded artefacts and hard detritus of human habitation, the local weed burden. the work has been described as using " the earth as the printing plate and time as the press"

i negotiate a path between installation, printing, painting, drawing, writing and sculpture - immersing myself in and paying deep attention to the environment, gathering thought and experience, imagery and marks, as well as harvesting materials for making; trying to step lightly on the land while being nourished by it. the work of each day, philosophically rooted in topophilia [the love of place] literally begins with a walk.
