Marian Ellis Rowan
Born in 1848, Rowan became a well-known botanical illustrator and met Marianne North in 1880. She was commissioned by Royal Worcester Porcelain to travel to New Guinea to illustrate birds and plants for use on ceramics, this is why the illustrations have their unique circular pattern.
