Hibiscus cv., Watercolor on Vellum by Jean Emmons
Residing on an island near Seattle, Emmons is currently interested in painting members of the genera Sarracenia and Arisaema, along with many Pacific Northwest mushrooms. Recently, she had four paintings included in the Royal Horticultural Society’s “Gold Medal Showcase”, a display of previous gold medal recipients purchased by London’s Lindley Library. In 2005, she received the prestigious Bouchier ASBA Founder’s Award for Excellence in Botanical Art. Her work is held in numerous collections including those of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Pittsburgh, the Alisa and Isaac M. Sutton Collection, and the Dr. Shirley Sherwood Collection.
A catalog of the artwork and profiles of the artists is available online from the ASBA for $20 plus shipping & handling. http://www.amsocbotartists.org/ASBA-Catalogs.html
