PAINTING THE EVIL WEED!
Based on her ongoing illustration work with Nicotianas in Kew Gardens, Deborah’s talk will tell a story of a plant family with a unique 6 million year old history. Deborah will talk about the joys and sorrows of working on a long term, in-depth study of a single plant family.
BIO Since 2017, Deborah has been painting and drawing Australian Suaveolens nicotianas as a part of a international genetic study of these Australian plants. However, she has been working as a botanical artist since leaving the National College of Art and Design in Ireland in 1991. Deborah has won awards for her work including the Margaret Flockton Award in 2020 and since 2005 she has held the position of Orchid Artist to the Royal Horticultural Society Orchid Committee.
