A botanic illustrator and erstwhile music photographer, Frances Perlzman Liscio designs and photographs floral compositions that are a little Victorian, and a little rock star. 
At age 72, 18th-century British artist Mary Delany began her floral collages. In an age of decoupage and floral paintings, her intricate paper art was a nod to both, and a new style of botanic art. 
Netherlands-based artist Anne ten Donkelaar designs shadow-boxed collages of intricate floralscapes with roots that dangle and succulents that grow upside down. Layering natural objects and paper bits—magazine cutouts, dried flowers and leaves, pressed paper, and illustrations—she builds landscapes that float like a surrealist's garden.
