Balcony Garden

Artist Statement
Clare Brebner


This series of illustrations is inspired by my first attempts at gardening, starting from seed. What initially begun as a daily warm-up sketch turned into a summer-long documentation of successes, failures, and the passage of time in this balcony garden. While most botanical illustrations depict plants in their prime, I was determined to continue creating images even during the plants’ less desirable stages. Having started the plants from seeds, I felt connected to them. Here are a few examples of these works, ranging from the eager beginning to the inevitable Canadian winter end.
