Rebecca Leslie - Behkening Botanicals
Rebecca Leslie has lived her whole life in Melbourne’s lovely ‘green wedge’ suburbs, surrounded by rolling hills and an abundance of Australian flora and fauna. Rebecca’s passion for botanical illustration stems from an abiding love and wonderment in nature and in its ever unfolding mystery and beauty.
Rebecca’s particular interest is shining a spotlight on objects in nature that might be overlooked and amplifying the inherent beauty and value of ordinary things like bark, feathers, nests and bees. She loves the miniscule detail that botanical illustration allows and hopes that her work might encourage others to look at the world around them with more interest and appreciation.
