Botanical and wild life artist
Dr Nita C Lester
As a botanist, Nita uses this knowledge to ‘play’ with botanical illustration and move her works towards the modern form. Pen and ink is currently her favourite medium but on occasion colour creeps in and energises the piece. Graphic design fills much of her spare time at present in the form of logos, brochure development and china pieces for volunteer organisations to name but a few.
Also creeping into Nita’s works are representatives of the fauna of Australia. Emus and echidnas especially appear often on her studio table. Her paintings have been exhibited in Australia, England and New Zealand. Her work is in public and private collections around the world. Recent award: Brisbane Rotary Spectacular 2014 – Highly Commended.
Currently the President of the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland and consulting botanist for a number of organisations including the Queensland Government. Recent local solo exhibtion was held at the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens in April 2015.
Nita enjoys offering her love of line and spaces for the enjoyment of others.
