Mary Delany, Pancratium Maritinum

this woman in particular caught my eye a few weeks ago as i was reading my textbook for art by women. mary was praised during the 18th century for her botanically accurate and life-size collages.
what makes her works even more impressive is the age at which she started producing them: 70 years old! just goes to show it is never too late to pursue something. go mary!
