Prunus persica, Watercolor by Rosemary Donnelly
Rosemary has a passion for plants and the natural world. Studies in horticulture led to an interest in botanical art, which she has pursued at Geelong Botanic Gardens since 2004. She exhibited in the 8th and 9th Royal Botanic Garden Biennial Art of Botanical Illustration, Melbourne, Australia, and in 2008 her painting Solanum melongena was selected for inclusion in the Illustrated Garden. Collection and 2010 RBG calendar. Diospyros kaki ‘Hyakumo’ is included in the Thirteenth International Exhibition at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Pittsburgh. Rosemary is inspired by tutor John Pastoriza-Piñol, artist colleagues, and the wealth of plants in Geelong Botanic Gardens.
