About Margaret Flockton
From 1901 to 1927, Margaret, a giant in the field of Australian botanical illustration, was Royal Botanic Garden Sydney Director J.H. Maiden’s right–hand woman. Maiden’s key works such as Revision of the Genus Eucalyptus, Forest Flora of NSW and his extensive treatment of the Opuntia genus are a testament to Margaret’s unsurpassed talent as a scientific illustrator and as Australia’s first female lithographer. Through her drawing, painting, plant collecting, teaching and a stream of commercial work outside the Gardens, Margaret brought a sincere passion to her dynamic and long career.
