inspired by nature

March 19, 2012

South Carolina artist Becky Davis walks through fields, along roadsides and deep into the woods to find grasses, ferns and flowers for her striking botanical prints.

She also wades into marshes (avoiding alligators) in the Lowcountry to gather other specimens, like water lilies.

The self-taught floral designer then begins the three-to-10-day drying and preserving process at her Summerton home. Once dried, the stored botanicals are carefully sprayed and mounted on foam core board.

Davis’ next-door neighbor now does the calligraphy on her botanical art before it is framed in standard black or walnut in her garage turned frame shop.

Prices start at $294 for a 10-inch-by-15-inch framed botanical. The crossed palmetto ($1,787.50) measures 60 inches by 40 inches and adds lots of “wow” to a wall.

Groupings of ferns and grasses are also popular. One 20-inch-by-40-inch framed botanical is $698.50.

Visit bdbotanicals.com to contact Davis or see her work in the gallery section.

When you visit the Charleston area, find Davis’ framed prints at one of three area GDC Home stores (gdchome.com).
