Parker, Janet


JANET PARKER stumbled upon a love of botanical art about 11 years ago, through taking evening classes at the New York Botanical Garden, while employed as a senior art director at Workman Publishing.  She is the founder of Oregon Botanical Artists, a group of like-minded local and regional botanical artists and art lovers, which has grown from 6 to 28 members in a little more than 2 years. Janet holds a BFA in Communication Design from Parsons School of Design, and a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the NY Botanical Garden. She enjoys working in graphite, pen and ink, colored pencil, pastels, and watercolor. See Janet's wor at, and
