Hibiscadelphus distans, Pen and Ink by Lesley Randall

While a landscape architecture student at Cornell University, Lesley became interested in botanical illustration. Working at a botanical garden in Hawaii, she found the plants fascinating to draw, and started illustrating professionally after moving to Davis, California in 1986. Her work, mainly pen and ink illustrations, has appeared in numerous scientific journals as well as a few floras. She enjoys graphite drawings and has recently started exploring colored pencil techniques. In addition to botanical illustration, Lesley makes leather masks and glass mosaics.
