Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria
Janette Barlow has always had an interest in art, but it was not until she discovered the art group under the tuition of Jennifer Small that she was inspired to concentrate on botanical art. Janette has also been lucky enough to acquire more skills from many talented artists, such as Barbara Duckworth and, most recently, Susannah Blaxill.
Over the last few years Janette has worked with other wonderful Wollongong artists from the Friends' Florilegium Art Group to produce an art collection for the Wollongong Botanic Garden. This work focuses on the rare, threatened and endangered local species of the region.
