Juglans sp., Graphite on Vellum by Martha G. Kemp
Martha G. Kemp enjoys the challenge of using graphite pencil to create lively portraits of botanical subjects. She has exhibited widely in the US and has received many awards, including the Bouchier ASBA Founder’s Award for Excellence in Botanical Art (1999) and five Gold Medals from the UK’s Royal Horticultural Society, most recently in 2007. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society, the Dr. Shirley Sherwood Collection, and the Collection of Alisa and Isaac M. Sutton. She currently serves on the ASBA Board of Directors.
