Mali Moir

I began my career as botanical artist in 1993 at the National Herbarium of Victoria, combining botanical and horticultural knowledge with artistic skills.

By working closely with botanists, I have gained an understanding of the importance of scientific accuracy, the fundamentals of precise measurement and thorough depiction of detail.

I have a keen interest in the artistic interpretation of natural history themes, approaching my work with traditional techniques, whilst developing a fresh contemporary look. I execute works on paper and I combine my fascination for science and nature with an active desire to render works of art with beauty, character and scientific merit.
I abide with my sincere belief that ‘artists make science visible’.
