Jessica Tcherepnine

Jessica Tcherepnine (1938–2018) was a self-taught botanical artist. She painted flowers all her life, loving the detailed observation this requires. She had solo exhibitions in London, New York, Paris, and Palm Beach, Florida, and was included in numerous group exhibitions. She won two gold medals at the Royal Horticultural Society. Jessica was a founding member of the American Society of Botanical Artists. She was invited to paint for the Highgrove Florilegium, Filoli Florilegium, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium. Her work is represented in collections internationally, including those at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, in Pittsburgh; the British Museum (Natural History), Royal Horticultural Society, Lindley Library, Shirley Sherwood Collection, in London; and the Benois Family Museum, Peterhof, St. Petersburg, Russia.
