Hello, my name is Johanna.
Currently, I'm based in Edinburgh studying Horticulture and Botanical Illustration.
I'm interested in entomolgy, herbology, permaculture, illustration and nature connection.
I'm fond of capturing moments on camera- whether that’s through filming or photographing. It’s so beautiful to be able to capture a snippet of your life, it makes it easier to hold onto a feeling or memory.
I love insects and forests with large tall pine trees, spooky looking old oak trees and dappled sunlight.
Autumn is probably my favourite season especially because of all the fungi; their diversity is just fascinating to me and I find myself illustrating them quite often. There’s just something really special about mushrooms. Some of my best memories are of cold autumn days spent searching for mushrooms in orange-yellow-red coloured forests with some amazingly knowledgeable people capable of identifying mushrooms in under a minute or so!
I’m interested in moths, butterflies and their metamorphosis. In my studies, I’m trying to learn about their ecological significance and plants that are important for their existence.
