Biography

Botanical taxonomist and artist, J R Shepherd, works with watercolours to create realistic portraits of plants.

"There was a very distinct moment when I realised that as a botanist what I was doing needed to be expressed visually as well as academically. In my artwork I try to explore how the viewer experiences and interprets scientific material that is represented visually in a beautiful way. I believe that by blending art with science we begin to generate new harmonies. I paint plants simply because I enjoy the challenge of depicting them as accurately as I can, whilst capturing their essence.”
