Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Margaret Erskine Wilson (b.1915), read modern languages at Girton College Cambridge, then studied Textile Design at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London, until the war broke out in 1939.

A career teacher, she finally moved to teach in the Lake District. She painted flowers all her life and exhibited at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Botanical Art Show in London, winning silver medals on at least two occasions.

She died in 2009 and donated many of her paintings of wild flowers to the Kendal Natural History Society of which she was a former President.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
At the time she donated the paintings to Kendal Natural History Society, she wrote:
Begun in 1943/4 for a friend who said, ‘I might learn the names of flowers if you drew them for me, in the months they’re in flower’.

The result is this beautiful, previously unpublished book of all her accurate and informative illustrations, painted over a period of 45 years.

Over a thousand British and Irish flowers are represented in this book and it still today serves Margaret Erskine Wilson’s original purpose – it is an easy way to learn the names of our delicate and beautiful wild flowers.
