Paintings by Ivy Jacobsen
Paintings of flora and fauna inspired by botanical illustrations and the plants she encounters while on daily walks through neighborhoods. The use of multiple, semi-transparent layers creates the illusion of depth that invites the viewer to explore the imaginary environment.
I strive to create a place of magical realism in my landscapes, balancing magical elements with real world rendering of flora and fauna found in our natural world. I gain inspiration from plant study, whether that be from my daily walks in my neighborhood, the study of botanical illustrations, or memories of plants and their life cycles.
