My name is Liming, a pressed flower artist, also a retired research chemist from an international chemical company. After retiring from chemistry, I turned my full attention to pressed flower art. It has been a hobby for nearly 20 years.  I live in East Bay, California as a transplant from NYC suburb.

It all started in the year 2000. I found some books from the local libraries on pressed flower art. The beauty of pressed flowers engulfed me. I started to pressed plant materials and learned how to transform the flat, dried plant materials, vibrant in color, rich in texture, into two dimensional art work.

Flower pressing is labor-intensive. It takes days to have the flowers pressed dry and ready to use. I used different methods to press the flowers and other plant materials depending on their thickness and moisture content; old phonebooks, desiccant boards, microwave are few of my choices.

My design starts two different ways: the flowers inspire me or I set my mind on a design then finding appropriate botanical materials to fit the design. Prints are made from completed designs; the original design usually is sealed either under glass or with a thin sealant for protection.

I do custom designs and my framing skill is at the professional lever. Please contact me if you have any particular needs.
