Please revisit for confirmed exhibition dates, details and images.

Inspired by the gardens of her youth at Mount Macedon and family connections to government botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, Rowan became a celebrated artist frequently depicting wildflowers.

Travelling extensively, she recorded numerous botanical species in Australia; New Zealand; the United Kingdom; the United States of America and Papua and New Guinea. She won numerous awards for her paintings which are characterised by both a detailed accuracy and compositional charm with touches of dramatic interest such as the inclusion of insects.

This exhibition celebrates a collection of delicately detailed flora and fauna works on paper.
