Spirit Memories of Gardens Past
by Tony(a) Lemos
Tony(a) Lemos works at the intersection of art and herbalism and has worked as a community herbalist/educator for over 25 years helping people connect with plants as allies for healing (physical /emotional and spiritual). She currently teaches a Botanical Art studio program at Blazing Star Herbal School as well as a year-long herbal apprenticeship which is now in its 24th year.
She is inspired by all aspects of the natural world and the elements. She works actively with the alchemical processes of Green World, be it eco-printing, alternative photography methods, or foraging and medicine making. Her artwork and healing work is process-based centering around relationship, well-being, creativity, connection, and co-existence. She believes art and creativity to be an integral part of the healing process.
Presently her work is multidisciplinary combining, relief and intaglio printmaking, monotype and contact printing with botanicals, and alternative photography methods. She has exhibited several solo shows In Northampton and North Adams and has participated in many group shows. She has been lecturing for 30 and more recently taught at the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard University, Tower Hill Botanical Garden, and the Provincetown Art Museum.
