 Contact Made with French Botanical Artists!

Anne McCahill, CVABA member, contacted the Société Française d’Illustration Botanique, introducing us and initiating contact between our two groups!

She translated Agathe Haevermans' response:
"Thank you for your interest, we would be delighted to share ideas and projects with you. We are a very young group, as compared to yours, and it would be a great opportunity to energize our association and to learn from your experience. Catherine Watters is one of our members among others as well (an American illustrators).  I am a member of ASBA and hope to join you at the next annual meeting in Denver. Do not hesitate to contact us.
Agathe Haevermans"

Their website is at the following link, and you can use Google translate to get a rough translation:

Be sure to check out their gallery at:

Agathe Haevermans is the President, and is a scientific illustrator at the National Herbarium of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.  As Ms. Haevermans suggested, those of us going to ASBA in Denver hope to meet up with SFIB! Very exciting!

Happy Holidays!
