About the artist
Bobbi Angell's botanical illustrations have appeared in a wide variety of scholarly and commercial publications since she began her career in 1978. Bobbi's focus has been to illustrate scholarly texts with pen and ink drawings created expressly to aid identification of the plant species depicted. In recent years Bobbi has been enjoying the intricate art of copper etching. Printmaking allows a natural extension of her compositional style with an enhanced focus on fine detail. Her graceful designs are drawn onto a ground on a copper plate, etched with acid and hand printed individually in small editions. A select few are hand tinted with watercolor.
