Our Botanical illustrations showcase the art of depicting the form, color, and details of plant species. Recently a renaissance has been occurring in botanical art and illustration. The reasons for this resurgence are many. In addition to the need for clear scientific illustration, botanical depictions continue to be one of the most popular forms of decorating country homes. There is an increasing interest in the changes occurring in the natural world, and in the central role plants play in maintaining healthy ecosystems. A sense of urgency has developed in recording today's changing plant life for future generations.
