Look out for James O'Neill at the EEE 2011

At EEE 2011 there will be a large number of traders on hand offering you a vast selection of carnivorous plants, and of course their expertise.  We are also delighted that artist James O'Neill is joining us and offering a selection of his carnivorous plant artwork for sale. 

James is 15 and has been drawing and painting nature since he could pick up a pencil. James tells us:

"Having just recently (about a year or so) got into Carnivorous Plants, my growlist has grown very quickly, the windowsills are filled to the brim with Nepenthes, Drosera and Utricularia; I realised what good subjects CPs are for art. With their smooth curves and strange shapes, colours, and the way they reflect light, it is a joy to be able to do these studies of them. I especially enjoy drawing Nepenthes and Cephalotus, but some might complain if there won't be any Pinguicula or Drosera!

Look out for James at the EEE 2011, and why not treat yourself! Attached are a few scanned images of James' work.
