1938 to 2019
Jessica Tcherepine began her career in the furniture department at Christie's before moving into painting. She went onto win two gold medals from the Royal Horticultural Society, and was invited to paint the beet (beta vulgaris) for "The Highgrove Florilegium," a 2008 book that records all the plants in Prince Charles's garden in Gloucestershire, England. Her paintings are in the collections of the Peterhof Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Natural History Museum in London. She was a longtime board member of the Horticultural Society of New York, for whom she taught botanical drawing to prisoners at Rikers Island.
