Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, color, and details of plant species. These are often printed with a botanical description in books, magazines and other media. Recently a renaissance has been occurring in botanical illustration and organizations devoted to furthering the process can be found in the United States and around the world. This art form will make your holiday greeting cards a one-of-a-kind delight for friends and family.
Haber-Lehigh received a Bachelor of Arts degree, from Pacific University, with a focus on printmaking and art history. She designed, illustrated and published a children’s book titled “ABC of Native Plants of the Coastal Pacific Northwest” and is currently at work on books about native berries and wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest. She is also a member of the Oregon Botanical Artists and the Native Plant Society of Oregon.
