Laurie Andrews


Born 1936

Following a career teaching mathematics and science and writing and illustrating Mathematics textbooks, Laurie discovered botanical illustration. She now works mainly on Australian native species. Owning property in South Gippsland, which contains some cool temperate rain forest, has focused attention on Gondwana land plants, particularly ferns.

She is represented in collections of The State Library of Victoria, The Herbarium of The Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne, The Singapore Botanic Gardens, The Shirley Sherwood Collection, The Hunt Institute of the Carnegie-Melon University in Pittsburg and many private collections.
