Dorota Haber-Lehigh,
Saturday, December 4, 2021 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm PST


Dorota holds a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from Society of Botanical Artists in UK, degrees in Art and International Studies with a focus on indigenous cultures, and a master’s degree in teaching. Born in Poland, Dorota’s love for nature began when as a child she accompanied her grandparents on mushroom hunting forays, spent hours in her parents and grandparents gardens, hiked summers in Tatra mountains and foraged for wild herbs and fruit. In her art she explores the idea of interconnectedness and fragility of our ecosystems, ecological diversity and species codependence. Dorota exhibits and teaches drawing regionally. Recently she has been an artist in residency at Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island. Her recent commission was an installation of 25 illustrations of native plants of the Pacific Northwest at the Columbia Memorial Hospital in Seaside, Oregon.

Dorota will share her process of creating walnut ink stained paper and how she utilizes the walnut ink background for fall and winter botanical drawings. Dorota will share some of her artwork and her process of drawing on walnut ink paper, focusing on drawing cones. She will also share her process of preliminary sketching and sketchbook practice. She will share a slide presentation as well as a short demo.
