It all started when my best friend began her studies in biology specialising in the genetics of plants. Since then her apartment magically transformed into a greenhouse and after a while, it expanded to my lodgings.

‘Plant Opulence’ is an ongoing series of illustrations dealing with my fascination with plants inside and outside my room.

What’s your favourite houseplant you own? Post an image of it in the comment section – and who knows maybe it will be the next illustration in this series.
