I do not intend my mushroom art photographs and prints to be used for mushroom identification, and, although I am often tempted, I do not indulge in mushroom picking. In the final mushroom art print, I want to present an interpretation of the mushroom which reflects the state and environment in which I found it. This is impossible to achieve after mushroom picking for many reasons. Obviously, after mushroom picking, the mushroom is not in the environment any longer, but for many mushrooms even from the very moment of picking, the mushroom itself rapidly begins to change, spores are lost, delicate veils fall off and change shape, colors degrade (sometimes instantaneously). Even minor things change, which might be a part of a mushroom art print 'scene composition', for example, the colorful mites and flies (sometimes a blessing, often a curse) will often depart after mushroom picking. The subtle and delicate natural spore prints on the surrounding groundcovers are disturbed or completely lost after mushroom picking. In contrast to the 'invasive' nature of mushroom photography for the purposes of mycology studies and mushroom identification, mushroom photography for the purpose of creating pictures of mushrooms for making mushroom art prints is quite the opposite. Visit the online gallery to browse Mushroom Artwork for sale as fine art prints, photo prints, greeting cards, canvas prints and other artwork presentation formats ready to hang gallery style.

The fungi kingdom, or mushroom kingdom, makes up its own kingdom because fungi are not animals, and fungi are not plants. Fungi and mushrooms do not photosynthesize and instead derive their energy from the decaying organic matter which supports them. This means they are not dependent upon the sun like most plants. This doesn't mean that all wild mushrooms grow in dark caves, however. For many fungi and wild mushrooms of the fungi kingdom the sun and the warmth it provides are essential to their life cycle. …
