Dr Judi Stone initially qualified as a biochemist, and was awarded her doctorate for research on novel methods of insect control. Taking up botanical illustration later in life, she established herself in this area by gaining honours at the Royal Horticultural Society. Since 1994 she has worked as a free-lance illustrator at Kew, producing both line-drawings and paintings for their publications, including Curtis’ Botanical Magazine and, most notably, the six volumes of Genera Orchidacearum, for which she completed a large number of line-drawings. She is a Fellow and former Chairman of Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society, and her work is held in numerous collections worldwide, including the Hunt Institute and the Lindley Library.
