MEET THE MAKER | BETH GREGORY
My brief for The Society inc newspaper #2 went something like this, ‘ Joseph Banks goes on a seafaring adventure seeking botanical specimens & stargazing along the way ‘. I have long admired Beth’s illustrations of Australian flora&fauna and asked her to imagine the front cover as an advertisement to encourage other able bodies to come along for the adventure.

Beth Gregory Q & A with Sibella
Describe the space/studio
Natural light with plants.
Graphite Pencil – it feels like an extension of myself and a way to apply ideas. It’s malleable and forgiving but can give tone and depth to ideas.
Latest book purchase?
From the local top shop a collection of loved books from different eras.
Books – I like the relationship between the author and the reader. It feels personal and intimate. I also like books for how versatile they are. I store my ideas in a sketch book.
Go-to subject matter?
Plants and anything to do with the wilderness.
Japan – Nikko.
Nature, surrounding and other people’s stories.
