Angie has a unique vision of the natural world. Her prints depict in intricate detail the native flora of a variety of environments, from salt marsh and Highland loch to flower-strewn meadow and wild garden. She finds beauty in each landscape, whatever the season, and is particularly inspired by plant forms: slender reeds, stately goatsbeard, spiky teasels and sculptural seed heads. Plants and Places presents over 70 of Angie's beautifully crafted linocuts and wood engravings. The works are grouped according to habitat — such as coast, woodland and hedgerow, and garden — together with drawings, paintings and collages from her sketchbooks of grasses, seed pods, seaweed, shells and other objects collected on her walks. In an engaging introduction, Leslie Geddes-Brown meets Angie in her studio, discusses her artistic inspiration and her fascination with plants, and describes how she creates her prints.

Nevertheless it was a delightful present, and I spent my Christmas afternoon watching Downton Abbey and voraciously reading Plants and Places the moment the adverts came on. Plants and Places is more than just a coffee table book, it is an open and honest account of how an artist creates her work. It is delightfully illustrated with sketches, photos, collages, work in progresses and finished prints. Where so many artists are secretive about their working practices, Lewin gladly obliges, showing us the inner workings of her sketchbooks and studios. The book is available to buy here.
