Ramalina sp., Physcia stellaris, Fucus vesiculosus, Celastrus orbiculatus, Watercolor by Kathy Folino
Kathy Folino’s work illustrates a fascination with the details of a natural world not apparent in casual observation.

She is currently enrolled in the Botanical Art Program at Wellesley College Friends of Horticulture. Kathy is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists, the New England Society of Botanical Artists, and the Ophthalmic Photographers Society.
