A screen print which I made using the photograph of an Iris plant grown from seed. Germinating Iris seeds is notoriously difficult and I had tried several different methods, including scarification and freezing. The deadline for my final major project was approaching and I had just about given up on the seeds when my sister found a jar with about eight tiny Iris plants inside. They had been put to one side and forgotten. Not scarified or frozen and thoroughly neglected, they were the only ones to actually germinate.
