“On inspiration there is but one, Nature.
For Nature knows no bounds. For her there is no colour too vivid, no form too bold.
Yes, it is to her I yield.
From her cool freshly stretched canvases of fallen snow, to the exquisite fiery strokes of her sunsets,
or the deep impasto of a raging sea, there is none greater.
Art and Artist, unequalled is she.
My Mother, my Master, my teacher, my life.
And so it is I say, that to Nature I bow,
long and mighty may she reign !”
~ L. J. Le Rolland

Title piece From the Collection “Bittersweet ~ Botanical Illustrations”
I’m really pleased to have my work featured online by
JUXTAPOZ Magazine ! Have a look for yourselves over at
Solanum dulcamara - Woody Nightshade or Bittersweet
Veiled amongst shadowy undergrowth and hedgerows can be found the delicate Woody Nightshade or Bittersweet, a femme fatale of flora.
Flowering from June through to September with an exquisite blaze of vibrant purple flowers and enticing, voluptuous scarlet berries, it is easily to fall under the spell of the Bittersweet.
Alas, Bittersweet by name, bittersweet by nature. Its allure and beauty aside, La Belle Fleur is pernicious - from its very root to berry it is entirely poisonous.
