Caroline Frances-King

While staying at Kunming Botanical Gardens on a Travelling Fellowship, a chance encounter with an ethnobotanist led Caroline Frances-King to spend six months painting herbs used in rural China as natural health remedies.
In this illustrated talk Caroline will explain how her interest in botanical art took her to China, some of the challenges she faced there, and how she became involved in a medicinal plant garden project in Shaxi, a rural village on the ancient tea horse trade route through Yunnan Province, Southwest China. She will also show some of her paintings of medicinal plants used to illustrate the plant garden, with a brief description of their common, or not so common, uses.
