About

Original hand made artworks of pressed flowers on printed photographs preserved within vintage frames.

Phoebe Hofsteede is a visual artist based in South-East Queensland, Australia, who specialises mainly in fine art photography, where she is known to create worlds from her imagination. Phoebe’s background studies in the visual and fine arts allows her to work intuitively, and has developed a style that is whimsical and romantic, yet dark and haunting. Her works often involve travel, nature, and storytelling. Phoebe’s interest in black and white photography allows her to create a sense of nostalgia in everyday things and places that she finds magical or inspiring.
Her most recent work is a celebration of nature, and a personal reflection of how it provides an escape to everyday life. The mixed media series features black and white photographs involving pressed leaves, flowers or petals, which vary in purpose. Sometimes the mixed media is an extension of nature’s designs, highlighting its fragility, other times it presents elements that weren’t physically there at all, but rather portray a mood, or purely a figment of one's imagination. The images are presented and preserved within antique & vintage frames not only for the purpose of sustainability, but to enhance the sense of nostalgia and other worldliness.
