In 1894, a shy young Englishwoman dazzled the art world with her first exhibited work in New South Wales.

Her name was Margaret Flockton, and she would go on to become Australia's first and most celebrated professional botanical artist. Her illustrations were admired for both their scientific accuracy and their exquisite beauty.

Flockton was a self-effacing artist with extraordinary output. Her paintings of Australia's wild flowers led onwards to the eucalypts, acacias and more, culminating in the creation of the international award that honours her work.

With hundreds of full-colour illustrations, including many of her beautiful plates, this biography captures the essence of a remarkable woman, illustrating a life of deeds, not words.
