Certain types of craftsmanship are maintained in the Garden, especially the tradition of botanical illustration. Started by Hélène Durand we now have a dedicated team who collaborate with our researchers. Our artists today are Sven Bellanger, Omer Van de Kerckhove, Antonio Fernandez and Liliane Tytens. The Botanical Garden also work with freelance illustrators as Marijke Meersman. They produce accurate, world class illustrations whose beauty transcends the borders of time, science and culture. Their illustrations serve in the publications of the Botanic Garden.
