The 'kowhai' tree is easily recognisable by its yellow flowers but in this black ink stippling Jenny Haslimeier has focused not on the vivid flowers but the equally recognisable seed pod and leaves. Printed on acid-free, archival museum quality 310gsm paper using archival inks, the work has been signed, titled and numbered by the artist.

Jenny Haslimeier is an award-winning botanical artist, illustrator and book designer.
Jenny began drawing at a young age, focusing on plants and wildlife an area she would return to later in life. Her early career was spent establishing herself as a graphic designer, later specialising in book design, while illustrating remained a hobby.
In 2014 Jenny enrolled in a Botanical Illustration course at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to further her illustration skills. Little did she know that in doing so, her career would shift direction and she would focus on becoming a botanical and natural history illustrator. Jenny graduated from the course in 2016 with distinction and has gone on to win several awards and recommendations for her botanical works.
A keen traveller, Jenny splits her time between New Zealand and Scotland, using her travels as a source of inspiration.
