Linda Fraser is a botanical artist who specializes in native plants of the southeastern United States. When she moved to Georgia she began collecting specimens of plants on her property for a herbarium. She soon realized the best way for her to study the plants and learn to recognize them was to draw them. In her words, “I hope my illustrations of southeastern native plants will promote appreciation of their excellent qualities, sometimes taken for granted."
