author & illustrator
Helen Ahpornsiri

Helen Ahpornsiri is an Illustrator living in East Sussex, by the sea and the countryside. Through the traditional craft of flower pressing, Helen preserves ferns, wildflowers, marine algae, and a plethora of other plants. Using these specimens she creates intricate new depictions of nature, from meticulously detailed birds with hundreds of leaf feathers, to life size bees made from the tiniest petals. Despite growing many of the plants she works with, Helen is a terrible gardener and provides grand buffets for snails.
