Jean Emmons

Jean Emmons started out as an abstract painter, creating large minimalist color fields, but her passion for the natural world led her to botanical painting. Jean has been a director of the American Society of Botanical Artists since 2002. She is a fellow of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society and a member of the Filoli Florilegium Society. Her work is included in the collections of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, in Pittsburgh; the Royal Horticultural Society's Lindley Library, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium collection. In 2005, she received a gold medal from the Royal Horticultural Society for an exhibit of watercolor paintings of Pacific Coast irises, as well as the American Society of Botanical Artists Diane Bouchier Founders Award for Excellence in Botanical Art. An avid gardener, she usually grows her subjects but sometimes finds them along a roadside. Lately, she is concentrating on arisaemas and sarracenias.
