THE EXOTIC COLLECTION

Abigayle's graduate collection explores themes of an exotic nature inspired by ‘The Exotic Collection’ by Edgar and Brian Lamb, who wrote books such as the 'Pocket Encyclopedia Of Cacti and Succulents In Colour'. Illustrations and imagery from found ‘Exotic Collection’ booklets has naturally translated into her work, where the obscure and unusual forms of the cacti and exotic plant life have been highly influential.
