Happy Birthday: Mary Vaux Walcott

Mary Vaux Walcott was a watercolor botanical illustrator born on July 31st.

She loved hiking and conservation. She served on the Board of the Indian Commission and was President of the Society of Women Geographers.

I love the rich colors and details in her watercolors. As an artist I love really zooming into my subjects so her style of illustration is very pleasing to me.

"Sometimes I feel that I can hardly wait till the time comes to escape from city life, to the free air of the everlasting hills." ~ Mary Vaux Walcott
