Expeditions into the remote Western Australian wilderness to gather inspiration and collect materials are privileges of the profession for life-long naturalist and botanical artist Jacqueline Pemberton.
Her passion for WA's natural environment is beautifully realised in her intricately detailed pencil and watercolour artworks, which focus on the flora and fauna of our biodiverse state.
We now stock a range of Jacqueline's framed prints in-store, including delightful 'Quokka' and 'Fairy Wren' illustrations and floral standouts such as the 'Silver Princess (Eucalyptus caesia)'.
When on location, Jacqueline takes photographs and creates sketches and colour charts, which allows her to beautifully and accurately capture her subjects once back in the studio.
Her exacting processes and keen observational skills mean her work can take several weeks to complete, but it's this painstaking perfection that has led to her illustrations being included in several conservation and art publications.
Jacqueline's divinely detailed illustrations make gorgeous gifts for both local and faraway friends and they're also a lovely keepsake of Kings Park for the nature-loving traveller.
