Welcome to ArtsBotanical.com

ArtsBotanical is a site devoted to the art of botanical illustration.

Botanical means relating to plant life, so botanical

illustration is the meeting point of art and science.

A botanical artist renders images that are true to natue in

an artistic and pleasing manner.

Botanical illustration stems from early cave drawings and can be seen

in some of the first books printed,

which included many illustrations of medicinal plants.

Botanical art is still popular and relevant today because contemporary

artists’are working to help preserve and document some of the

endangered species of our planet.

Linda Ericksen is a botanical artist based in California, who

works in watercolor, colored pencils, and pen and ink.

View her work in the Gallery pages and check out her workshops
