Twila Robar-Decoste : Nova Scotian Botanical Paintings

Botanical Artists of Nova Scotia Association President, Twila Robar-Decoste has opened her latest exhibit titled "Bloom" at Argyle Fine Art. Her meticulous and exacting depictions of local flora are exquisite, and  highlight a style of artwork made popular in the 1700's. Twila's approach is both scientific and artistic, with two degrees in mycology from Acadia University (where she created carefully rendered drawings to document specimen) paired with a lifelong study in art.

Twila's exhibition can be seen alongside works created by the graduating class of the NSCAD ceramics department. The botanical paintings can also be seen here :
