Contemporary botanical artists work in a variety of media including traditional watercolor on paper as well as colored pencil, gouache, oil, ink, silverpoint and graphite on vellum, mylar, and other substrates.

Selection and treatment of subject matter are as varied as nature itself.

Teaching and practicing botanical art instills discipline, observation, patience and an appreciation of the functionality, diversity, interdependence and intricacy of the living world.

Contemporary botanical art draws together art and science, history and horticulture, economics and ethnology.

Contemporary botanical artists are drawing attention to the issues and opportunities of our times including education, bio-diversity, conservation, health and well-being.
