Selected for the cover of the The Hunt Institute 13th International catalogue.
"The Hunt Institute dedicates the 13th International catalogue in honor of Emerius Curator of Art James J. White, whose tenure at the Hunt Institute (1978 - 2010) had such a positive impact on the lives of numerous contemporary botanical artists throughout the world."
On a visit to London James White saw my very first submission of botanical paintings to the Society of Botanical Artists annual exhibition in Westminster Hall and invited me to exhibit at the 13th International exhibition at the Hunt. Sadly I never had the opportunity to meet him and wish to express my gratitude for his encouragement through my first steps as a botanical artist
