Botanica 2016 At Farm Cove
It's that time of the year again for this wonderful exhibition held in the Sydney Botanic Gardens Lion Gate Lodge.
This years theme is in celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. Many of the botanic artworks on display will be inspired by the native plants of the Sydney region & plants that arrived with the early settlers. Many of the works will also have the addition of pollinators such as insects.
All of the original works will be for sale and one of them I'm delighted to say is mine. This year my piece is a very old Banksia serrata seed pod (as seen below) .... and I could not resist adding the Banksia Jewel Beetle! I also have a small selection of my limited edition prints for sale at the exhibition.
More details here.
The Margaret Flockton Award will also be showing a magnificient selection of scientific botanic illustrations.

The Florilegium Book
I'm very excited about receiving my copy of this very exciting publication.
It is also a celebration of the 200 year anniversary of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
It's a gorgeously printed book full of stunning botanical artworks and painted by a large number of wonderfully talented Botanic Artists. I feel so honored to be amongst them and send my sincere thanks to the lovely Florilegium commitee for all of their hard work, they have done a superb job.
My painting of the chinese pine Keteleeria fortunei is shown in the 2 smaller pics below. I was thrilled to discover a detail of my cone beside the introduction.
