Jenny Phillips, a Gold Medallist from The Australian
National Print Awards 1998, The Royal Horticultural Society,
London 1993, the Celia Rosser Award, has focused her drawing, watercolour skills,
and love of gardening on botanical art since 1971.

beauty and life of a plant, without compromising on botanical details,
makes her work extremely collectable.
