Carolyn Rekerdres

Carolyn’s interest in botanical art led her to a recent stint at the National Tropical Botanical Garden Research Center in Kauai, HI. where amazing archival realism is achieved in watercolor.

“I have a new respect for the painstaking work of the botanical illustrators whose focus on botany – even today – runs circles around Photoshop…”
Carolyn has also been busy mastering the principles of book-binding including the playful use of faux skin book-covers with gilt edging to dress up volumes of sketch books … blank and ready for your input.
