Wild Things’ own Kathleen Garness was the first featured scientific illustrator on The Smithsonian’s Environmental Research Center’s new website, Go Orchids! The page displays a collection of her drawings and finished paintings of a variety of beautiful orchids, many from the Chicago area. Note that each image features a little leaf “Go” link in the bottom corner taking you to more information about the orchid depicted.

View them and learn more about Kathleen and her work on the Smithsonian’s site and here on the Wild Things Community local artists profiles page. And check out the entire Go Orchids site from its homepage.

Congratulations, Kathleen!
