Caitlin Klooger: Watercolour herbarium

Artist statement

“Inspired by the huge range of botanical specimens at the Herbarium, I started painting watercolours of a variety of the plants as well as others found around the botanic gardens site. True to my love of Australian flora I focused on native plants with a few Australian birds and butterflies added to the mix.”
