The artist, Aleka Artemis Munroe has developed a technique of botanical pounding, in which she places live plant material—flowers, buds, leaves, and herbs—on watercolor paper, covers them with wax paper and pounds the flora with a hammer, imprinting the flora pigment into the watercolor paper. Only black or gold archival art pen is added to delineate each unique print. It is a mindful process; through experimentation Aleka has discovered more about nature’s flora than meets the eye. Aleka also creates Compasspoints Perspectives: Clearing the Chaos in Our Cages, which are a combination of photography and words to teach people to see alternate perspectives. She uses this medium in motivational speaking and as art.
