Juror: Wendy Hollender, juror, is the coordinator for Botanical Art and Illustration at the New York Botanical Garden. She teaches students there as well as leading workshops in exotic locations such as Trinidad, and Hawaii. Through her work developing floral designs for clients such as Wedgwood China and Westpoint Stevens, she became intrigued with the complex beauty of plants. This fascination inspired Wendy to earn a certificate of Botanical Art and Illustration, and become a full time Botanical Artist and Illustrator. Currently some of her clients include: the French beauty company Coty Inc., the Riverside Park Fund, the Morven Garden and Museum, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation and Caspari, Inc. Wendy is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited her work extensively across the United States and England. Illustrations by Hollender have graced the pages of publications such as Country Living and Horticulture magazines and the Missouri Botanical Garden scientific journal Novon. Random House is publishing a book on Botanical Drawing by Wendy in July 2010.
