Hi there, I'm new to the Palmtalk board, and just wanted to share my website with you.
I am a botanical artist from Australia, but have been based in the Palm Room at Kew Gardens in London for the past ten years. I have recently painted the new genus Tahina spectabilis for a private commission, and decided to have limited edition prints made of it. They will eventually be on sale at the shop here at Kew, but in the meantime I'm offering them at a lower price to any palm enthusiasts who might be interested. I was lucky enough to have drawn the original illustrations describing this palm, and to have access to photos taken by John Dransfield and others who were lucky enough to visit the palm in Madagascar.
Please feel free to give me your feedback, or contact me via my email address on the website.
